Agnes,

Did you watch the UK tv program, "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?"

Some brilliant young hopefuls competed to star in a stage relaunch of 'The Sound of Music'. Wonderful entertainment.

At the moment, they are repeating 'I'd Do Anything,' on UK TV. Same format, except the girls are competing for the chance to play 'Nancy'.

Was that the one where Andrew Lloyd Weber was the judge? Personally, purely as a matter of preference, I would have had to be a bit more of a masochist to find it "wonderful entertainment." :wink:

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

No Jack, I didn't know about the program. Thank you for bringing it to my
attention, I will look it up.

Regards and a Happy New Year,
Agnes.

Thank you, Agnes, and a very happy New Year to you and your family.

"I'd Do Anything" is currently showing on UK TV. I get it on Foxtel. The show is on twice a week.

They are also currently showing "When Joseph Met Maria", in which the respective winners of the two previous competitions entertain us.

Regards,
Jack
