The Pittsford Perennialist has some thoughts on NBC's Sound of Music after watching it last night. Reading the FB newsfeed this morning, I was taken aback that nuns were featured in the updated production, though their songs were apparently bad. Worthy of a post-Vatican II Uhmerican Mass? Maybe. I suppose the producers can only go so far in updating the story - taking out the nuns and Maria's difficulty in discerning her vocation would probably outrage fans of the musical and movie, or of the von Trapp family.
