The Summer of Mary Poppins

I’ve heard about three summer productions of the musical Mary Poppins: two locally (at Town Theatre and New Heights Church) and one in Alabama (Debra Goldstein’s blog message on The Stiletto Gang described it). I had the privilege of seeing the delightful New Heights’ version, which used scenery featured in Town’s production. While the show has the songs I remember from the Walt Disney movie, it adds other plot elements that make me want to read Travers’ books to learn more about this fascinating nanny. Congratulations to all of the companies for bringing this character to a new generation.
