Reality TV comes to the Theater

I've never been able to jump on the Reality TV band wagon. So I am a bit apprehensive about this new show. As you may know Sound of Music is scheduled to be opening in the west end, and to select a Maria they are turning to a reality show.

"The newest reality show, "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?," begins its run on BBC-1 July 29 at 6:50 PM.

Hosted by Graham Norton, the series hopes to find an actress to play the lead role of Maria von Trapp in the forthcoming West End revival of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and producer David Ian are co-producing the upcoming revival, and both are involved in the new television series." from
