This Could Be Cool

From Variety: In its pursuit of audience-grabbing event programming, NBC is said to be eyeing a live staging of Aaron Sorkin’s play “A Few Good Men.”
The Peacock is in the early stages of working out an agreement with Sorkin to mount a live telecast of the play that put him on the map as a writer when it hit Broadway in 1989. The 1992 feature starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore was a hit for TriStar Pictures.
The story revolves around the court-martial case against two Marines accused of killing another serviceman. The film helmed by Rob Reiner earned four Oscar nominations, including best picture and supporting actor for Nicholson.
A Few Good Men is in my all time top 15 movies.
It would be a pretty easy play to put on as there is not a lot of physical action, like fights or car chases and the sets would be few in number.
But could the live play out do the movie, especially this scene?

And I also think the Colonel did nothing wrong.
