As I sit and write this, I am still on a high from going to see the UK tour of Mary Poppins in Birmingham yesterday. From the very start of the overture to Mary flying over the audience when the wind changed (come back Mary!) I was in complete awe. It was amazing! The songs, the dancing, the sets, the lights, the costumes ... everything was absolutely brilliant! There were some new songs and some of the songs from the original Disney film weren't in it ... my favourite was "Step In Time" ("It's the master! ... ") I have always loved the film and to see Mary in the flesh (because, obviously ... she is real, and can fly with the aid of her parrot brolly) was a dream come true! Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way!
