We have been waiting for this day for a long time. And lately, we have been all about the theater (Alice in Wonderland on Saturday!!). So, some time ago when tickets to the national touring Broadway company’s production of Mary Poppins went on sale, we jumped at the chance to go on the very first night. Heather adores everything about Mary and to be truthful, Bert is one of my (Bo’s) heroes. So we headed downtown for huge slices of NYC style pizza and the wonderful Bass Hall. Tonight couldn’t have come quickly enough.
And the show? It. Did. NOT. Disappoint. So so so great. The production quality was outstanding, the actors engaging, the dancing thrilling and the songs were of course so so good. We couldn’t have asked for more. The actors portraying Mary & Bert were amazing, and by the end the entire audience was standing clapping to one last song. We were in tears seeing older ladies dancing and clapping and everyone with such great smiles. Pure joy.
