'The Sound of Music' to tour without 'varnish'

Tony Award-winning director Jack O'Brien is working on a touring version of "The Sound of Music" starting next year, but he promises he won't be "trotting out your mother's version." O'Brien, who has helmed such winning Broadway productions as "The Coast of Utopia" and "Hairspray," said he'll try to strip the show back to its essence, dropping a lot of the "whiskers on kittens and warm woolen mittens" stuff.

Finally, Cinderella made it to the Great White Way last year, and lucky enough for Philadelphia, the National Broadway tour opens at the Academy of Music in November.
