A Little Bit of Broadway

Mary Poppins

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.
