How do you solve a problem like Maria?

Last summer, my secret and then no-so-secret TV obsession was "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" This show had actually been showing in England when I was travelling 2 years ago, and now it was in Canada. A talent search to find the star of the new Canadian production of "The Sound of Music," and it was brilliant.

The best part was when the singers with the lowest number of votes had to sing in front of the musical director (who was later arrested on some kind of solicitation charge and missed the finale!) and then he decided who to "save" for the next week.

Tonight, we are off to see the winner, Elisha (my top choice as the show developed) as Maria in "The Sound of Music." And have dinner at a high-end Mexican restaurant. With Sangria. And stay overnight. In a hotel. Without the child.

These are a few of my favourite things . . .
