Last night Gordon, Tony and I went to see Mary Poppins The Musical at the Prince Edward Theatre in Old Compton Street.
With smash songs like A Spoonful Of Sugar, Feed The Birds, Chim Chim Cher-ee and the sublime Let's Go Fly A Kite how could it fail? The two show stoppers were the fantastic Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and roof-top winner Step In Time.
Laura Michelle Kelly as Mary was fabulous. Directors Richard Eyre and Matthew Bourne (who also choreographed) have got it just right. It is an imaginative, energetic and artful production, and no matter your age, by the time Mary floats off the stage with her magical umbrella, you're bound to fly high right along with her.
Mary Poppins is spit spot. And practically perfect in each and every way.
