Maura West (Ava, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Carly, AS THE WORLD TURNS) and husband Scott DeFreitas (Andy, AS THE WORLD TURNS) have some very talented kids who are following in their footsteps, especially son Joe West. Having previously appeared on Broadway in A Christmas Story and in a production of Sleepless In Seattle, Joe has now been cast as Kurt in NBC’s telecast of The Sound Of Music Live! (That’s him sitting on the right side of the couch in the photo above.)
The three-hour live telecast is scheduled to air on Thursday, December 5, at 8:00 pm EST. The Sound Of Music Live! stars Carrie Underwood as Maria and TRUE BLOOD’s Stephen Moyer as Captain von Trapp.
