NBC is planning to do another live musical next year

The Sound of Music

Despite The Sound of Music Live! being panned by much of the internet, critics included, it did get over 18 million viewers, so it shouldn't exactly come as a surprise that NBC would be thinking about doing it again. 

And it turns out they are. 

The New York Times spoke with NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt who said that the network is looking at the option of staging another live event next holiday season and are currently "circling a couple of titles."

"All weekend, people have been calling us and emailing us,” Greenblatt said. “Rights holders of musicals have said, ‘Please do one of our shows.’ We’re excited to try it again.”

The Sound of Music producers, Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, would probably be involved, but it's not clear if they would try and reunite Carrie Underwood and the rest of the Sound of Music Live! gang or go for an all new cast. 

So what would be your choice of musical to get the live treatment? Cats? Annie? Something else? 

If you missed the first run of The Sound of Music Live! NBC is airing it again on Saturday night.

    I missed the initial airing of the Sound Of Music Live with Carrie Underwood. I’ll have to try and watch next time it’s on.
