Critic Reviews for The Sound of Music
Appealing to the whole family and giving Julie Andrews a chance to sing and perform charmingly, it presents Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp, a role that is sure to enhance the popularity of this fine actor.
In dialogue, song and story, Music still contains too much sugar, too little spice.
Call me a drongo, but this really is quite watchable (yes, I've seen it more than once).
The septet of blond and beaming youngsters who have to act like so many Shirley Temples and Freddie Bartholomews when they were young do as well as could be expected with their assortedly artificial roles, but the adults are fairly horrendous.
Audience Reviews for The Sound of Music
This is a very sickly sweet musical, but is guarenteed to entertain even the grumpiest of people!
SO RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY! The music and lyrics are beautiful and well-paced, save for a few woolly reprises. No one is too evil, except for the freakin' Nazis, and rightfully so cuz the enemy OUGHT to be bigger than us all! I rather love Charmian Carr as Liesl and "Sixteen Going On Seventeen," but my stomach just wells up with anger during that flirtatious little number, knowing that Rolfe is gonna become a little Nazi bitch. Watching as an adult now, I'm also pleasantly surprised at how subtly sexy that whole dance scene between Maria and Captain Von Trapp out on the terrace is.
One of the best musicals ever!
