In 2005, Disney took its beloved 1964 film musical Mary Poppins and brought it to the Broadway stage. Well, actually, it opened on the West End, but you know what I mean! Based on the novels of P.:. Travers, millions have thrilled to the story of the nanny who files into Cherry Tree Lane and changes the lives of everyone who lives in the house – daughter, son, mother and father. We are listening to the original London cast, which I was lucky enough to see. What a fun evening!
To end, here’s my favorite number from the film version which didn’t make it to the stage version – Ed Wynn singing I love to laugh.
