CC and I are excited to catch the musical incarnation, based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the famous 1964 Walt Disney film. CC loves singing and dancing, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the movie has been translated for the stage. (From what I hear, it's a bit darker than the film and might frighten super-little ones. We're going to the opening on Friday, so I'll be sure to give the lowdown.)
A co-production of Disney and Cameron Mackintosh, with Julian Fellowes (of Downton Abbey fame) writing the book, Mary Poppins the musical will feature both classic songs (Yay A Spoonful of Sugar, and I won't even try to spell the even more famous one!), as well as new ones.
Mary Poppins, which has appeared on the West End and Broadway, will be running at the Ahmanson through Sept. 2. Tickets start at $25.
