Girls Night Out | “Practically Perfect”


It’s been a while since I saw a really good, all strong characters musical at the Fox. But, Mary Poppins? Right up there with Wicked.

Mary Poppins

{There was a little girl next to us that was totally nailing her pose. We asked for tips and she just looked at us funny!}

The singing was spot on (or “spit spot”) and all of the characters really nailed their parts. Of course, it was a little different than the movie, but that left me not knowing exactly what was going to come next. There were some fun effects, too. For example, “Bert” walking up the stage wall and onto the ceiling and Mary Poppins traveling in and out of via the “winds.”

If you get a chance to see it, or it comes to town, make sure you get tickets to see it. It’s fabulous. And, if there is a matinee, or your kids do well staying up late, they would really enjoy it, too!

*I received tickets to the show. All thoughts are my own. If I don’t like it, you don’t hear about it:)

    I totally agree with everything Krystyn said. I don’t really remember liking the movie, but the play was fabulous! Even the two kids, who were in almost every scene, did a wonderful job. I highly recommend it!

    1. I feel like I need to watch the movie again..might be a not scary one for the girls.

  2. Oooo, I will have to see if that is coming to Tampa! Sounds good!

    1. Yes, definitely check..not quite as good as wicked, but still pretty darn good!

    1. Look and see if it will be near you. It’s totally a good night out.

    Our whole courtship was based on Mary Poppins which was the first movie date we had. John was always sing “It’s a jolly holiday with Lura” to me. I know I would love seeing this stage play. Glad you enjoyed it.

  5. I have been wanting to see this since it first came out several years ago! I am so jealous!

    1. It was awesome. The show was at 8pm during the week, though and I knew they wouldn’t last through it, so they didn’t go this time.

      I wonder if we’ve ever run into her?

  8. I would love to see this, and I think you nailed the pose too, lol.

  9. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I still haven’t seen Mary Poppins the movie. I know I know I need to rectify this very soon.

  10. I loved this movie. I will have to keep an eye out for this near here.

  11. This sounds like a great play!!! I have been wanting to see it but haven’t gotten a chance. Glad you enjoyed it.
