'Mary Poppins' Broadway Review

'Mary Poppins' Broadway Review

I got the chance to see Mary Poppins on Broadway a couple weeks ago and might I say, it was “practically perfect!”

Everything seemed to fit in seamlessly from the magical set and vintage costumes to the superb cast. My only gripe with the show is the park scene where these silvery, spadex-clad (there’s a leaf covering, don’t worry) statues come to life, prancing around and dancing together. It was a bit… much. And overly drawn out. Otherwise, if you’re going to see a Disney musical soon, don’t go see Tarzan, give Mary Poppins a chance!

Below, you can watch the Broadway cast of Mary Poppins at this morning’s performance of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (yes, I typed that from memory) from The Today Show. It’s a great performance. It’s just too bad the Today cameramen missed the best part — Gavin Lee (Bert) spelling out Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious with his body. It’s bloody brilliant… but they didn’t show it! Gah! Thank God for YouTube, you can watch Gavin work his magic here with the Original London Cast here.

P.S. Don’t miss the video after the jump. It’s of the cast performing “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” during one of last month’s curtain call.


I have the song memorized, I’m working on the choreography!

    Thanks for post the link to this. I never watch Today and would have missed it. I have to agree that the other video is so good. I loved how the guy spelled it out. I would love to see the show, but we are on the west coast.

    I completely agree! I saw the show last Saturday and absolutely LOVED it!!
