Adults Beware!,
Jul 15, 2008
reviewer: from New York
In the Disney fashion, the play was excellently and creatively done. Unfortunately, if you are over 4 foot six inches, I would not recommend the balcony seats. We had front row, upper balcony seats and the seats were so small that I, who am 5' 2", had to kneel for the entire first act. I couldn't get my knees bent and my feet flat on the floor, nor could the 5'2" teenage camp counselor next to me. I have attended other Broadway plays, including the Lion King, and the balcony tickets were perfectly adequate. This was the most uncomfortable theatre experience I have had, and I am grateful that I did not bring my six-foot tall husband with me and my son. Gratefully, some very tall man helped himself to the seats in the balxcony boxes during the second half of the show, and I was able to stand and rest on the seat during the last act.

Absolutely magical!,
Jun 03, 2008
reviewer: from Sunnyvale, CA, USA
This production lived up to all the expectations I had. Long before Julie Andrews ever uttered a note, Mary Poppins was a part of my life, having been brought up on the book! Ashley Brown was spit-spot on as Mary, with a stupendous voice and wonderful presence. And Gavin Lee more than lived up to the Dick Van Dyke version of Bert! Disney didn't miss a beat on this one!

absolutely amazing!,
Jun 01, 2008
reviewer: from USA
As a teenager, I really didn't want to go to see Mary Poppins. I thought it would be a production that would bore me to death. I can't believe how wrong I was!! It was the most amazing Broadway production I've ever seen. It's witty, rousing, and has a great moral behind it. I'd reccomend this show to anyone between the ages of 1 and 100, especially teenagers! It's absolutely supercalifragalisticexpialadocious!!

Unexpected depth of story,
May 12, 2008
reviewer: from Los Angeles, CA
Fun, as always, to be on 42nd Street. The history and glory of the New Amsterdam Theater enthralled. The performance dazzled and enchanted us. What was unexpected was the depth of the story - the compassion for the vulnerable, well-intentioned, hard working father, the elegantly good wife unsure of what role she played in society, and the children aching to be with both of them. The sweetness of the family finding time to just be a family was wonderfully conveyed. I thought I'd have fun at this musical, that I also found tears and moments of great depth was a wondrous surprise. Thanks for your hard work, your enormous talent, for making it seem like opening night - and especially for a spoonful of medicine to weary, overbooked families.
