The other night I went to see the award-winning theatrical musical, Mary Poppins. While I wasn't a huge fan of the movie growing up, I was blown away by the musical. The performers astounded me with their incredible voices, dancing and acting chops, the orchestra gave me chills reminiscent of my Les Mis days (fyi, I used to be obsessed with Les Mis), the set design delighted me, and the performance came complete with a flying Mary Poppins and upside down tap-dancing on the roof!
Most thrilling yet, though, was that the very night I was there, for that ONE night only… DICK VAN DYKE, the charming bloke from the original film himself, guest-appeared in a role towards the end. OH MY, the whole audience was in tears of joy when we saw him. What a wonderful, magical evening.. it was rather like a bottle full of sugar to relish the whole week long ahead! BRAVO!
