With the successful experiment of the 2013 live performance of the Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood; 2014's Peter Pan, 2015's The Wiz Live! and most recently, January 2016's GREASE: LIVE, it seems that live TV is baaack. But this is nothing new. TV was live from its infancy in 1936, broadcasting the Summer Olympics held in Berlin. Until 1958 most if not all of TV WAS live. Now, except for the news and local morning shows, and Saturday Night Live in the 1970s, most of TV has been broadcast on tape. That is, until now. Dancing with the Stars, portions of American Idol, The Voice and America's Got Talent are carried live. And finally, TV is taking on LIVE Broadway Musicals...and this week, so do we.
