It isn't like the original, but it is so much better than most of the Peter Pan live play. The first 30 minutes of Peter Pan was pretty good. Much of the rest of the broadcast had its problems. However, despite the fact that the movie was better, the Sound of Music live play on NBC was pretty good. Many critics have failed to realize that Carrie Underwood wasn't an actress by trade. Her acting was believable considering that. However, it was her singing that was really good. I like shows like this as my mind knows that it is fiction. Finally something that I want to watch. Hopefully the Wiz will be good too.
