You know what? I'm giving NBC a pass on this. If I have a choice between having them point on yet another crappy pseudo-"reality" show or more shows where performers are taking the risk of performing live without autotune? I say give me more.
Now to get a group of people famous enough to draw an audience but good enough actors to pull it off (think John Goodman, Kevin Spacey, Patrick Stewart etc) to do a update of Playhouse 90 or something similar live on a weekly basis

I agree completely.

I cant claim to be a huge theater fan, but if you going to do a live televised performance why not go all the way?  NBC can afford big names, those 30 Rock live shows prove it.  Bring in Mandy Patinkin or Jon Hamm, names that may help create an interest in classic theater.

If you are going to put live theater on your flagship channel during prime time and have the capital of NBC you have no excuse not to go big.

Hopefully this projects success will make them more inclined to try this in the future.
