"It’s a romantic story: A young woman, plucked from her arcane studies, reinvigorates a stagnant community with the power of her song.
I’m referring, of course, to 20-year-old Kerstin Anderson, who plays Maria von Trapp in the revival of “The Sound of Music” beginning a national tour at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.”
"But Anderson takes charge with a spirit so joyful, a physicality so lithe and coltish, and a soprano so flawlessly soaring, that only Frau Schraeder, Captain von Trapp’s jilted fiancée (Teri Hansen), could possibly resist her charm."
- Margaret Gray/ Los Angeles Times
