Mary Poppins in Chicago: Practically Perfect in Every Way

I was recently invited to attend a performance of Broadway in Chicago's Mary Poppins. Rachel Wallace *was* Mary Poppins; she was just a fabulous fit and did a fine job of making the role her own, while still allowing older members of the audience like me to delight in our memories of Mary on the silver screen.

As a seasoned adult, I must confess that I'm quite curious about the backstory with Mary and Bert, her chimney-sweeping friend, played by Nicolas Dromard. But the fine singing, dancing, imaginative sets and colorful costumes kept my mind from wandering too far.

I got to speak with a few members of the cast after the performance as a blogger perk. As tired as I was by that time of night (I had flown home from a business trip in Denver at 7 that morning), the cast members were that extreme of perky. They were enthused and full of energy (also many years younger than I am) and regaled our small group of bloggers with tales of traveling around the country with this musical.

It's always a pleasure to speak with people who love their jobs, and frankly, I think that love shows through on the stage.

If you and your kids enjoy musicals, put this one on your list.
