Mary Poppins Continues To Soar On Broadway

One of Disney's most beloved films is now one of Broadway's most beloved musicals. I am of course talking about Mary Poppins. The new musical which is based on the classic 1964 movie was nominated for 7 2007 Tony Awards including Best Musical and has been charming audiences of all ages since it first opened on Broadway in November 2006. The film was a personal favorite of mine as a child and I was so excited that it was being made into a Broadway show. Now those of you who read my blogs must think I've lost my mind. I hate Disney. No what I hate are cartoons being turned into splashy Broadway musicals. Mary Poppins is different. Yes I know there were a few cartoonish elements in the movie but they were minimal. I got the chance to see the show before it first opened and I was so happy that I did. It was like being a little kid all over again. Finally Disney got it right. Let's see if they can do it again. I won't hold my breath.
