Mary Poppins is ‘Practically Perfect’ in every way – no, Actually Perfect in every way
Mary Poppins umbrellared into Sydney at the Capitol Theatre for a ‘Super’ opening night performance that saw the entire audience rise as one at it’s rousing conclusion, to enthusiastically demonstrate their appreciation for a show that is more than just ‘Practically Perfect’.

Mary Poppins, the Sydney production, had us spellbound from beginning to end.  This musical is being hailed by theatre critic royalty as likely the very best production of the show in the world.

The entire cast managed to ‘Step in Time’ with ‘Precision and Order’ throughout the magical performance filled with all the joy that is, Mary Poppins.  This is not just ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’ style musical for the kids it will delight across every demographic.  ‘Anything Can Happen’ in Mary Poppins and it does – but we are not going to give away the extra special theatrics here – you need to see them for yourselves.

Verity Hunt-Ballard, as Mary Poppins, is ‘A Shooting Star’ and left us in awe of her portrayal of  P.L. Travers’ fictional character that first came to life in her ‘Poppins adventures’ novel published in 1934.  Verity is spellbinding in the role and ‘Let’s Hope She Will Stay’ on as Mary for as long as the show runs in Sydney.

Matt Lee, as the lovable ‘Bert’, turns his character literally on his head ‘Playing the Game’ as the tap dancing chimney sweep to the rooftops and beyond in a sequence that will leave you ‘transfixicated’ (MiSociety bought that one from Mrs Corry).

How wonderful when ‘A Man Has Dreams’ and they come to fruition in the way Cameron Mackintosh’s have with this extravagant, family friendly Mary Poppins he has co-produced in collaboration with Disney.

‘Chim Chim Cher-ee’ was still being hummed we all made our way from the Capitol Theatre on to the after party at the Sydney Town Hall, swept along by a guard of umbrella wielding, sootied chimney sweeps.

The Sydney Town Hall had been Poppinised all the way up to it’s chimney stacks with white picket fenced gardens, a Mary Poppins Pie Store and a ‘Supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus’ lit organ.   There was no ‘Brimstone and Treacle’ on offer at the ‘Mrs Corry’ lollie shop just jar upon jar of sugary treats to the delight of the hoards of ‘big kids’ at the party.

Sydney is going to fall in love with Mary Poppins and even if you don’t live in Sydney treat yourself to a ‘Jolly Holiday’ in the city and grab your tickets now, as you know – Mary Poppins will ‘only stay until the wind changes’.
