Just A Spoonful of Sugar

Last night I went to see Mary Poppins on Broadway.  After finding out it was closing March 3, I realized I needed to see it right away.  I've seen Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aida, Tarzan, The Little Mermaid, and Newsies, and I just couldn't bare to miss the only Disney musical I hadn't seen.  J and I got fourth center orchestra seats which is exactly where I like to be sitting.  The best part of the musical for me was "Step in Time" which was a huge tap dancing number. It was the whole magical singing and dancing act I want when I go to a show.  I've never had such a difficult time not singing along at a show.

There are all these rumors that Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame are the next shows.  Personally, the only show I didn't really enjoy was The Little Mermaid, so they should just keep churning these suckers as far as I'm concerned.  One day I may have children and leave the city and I know Broadway will be one of the things I miss the most.

When I was in 7th grade my school put on a production of "Mary Poppins." I was in the orchestra, and funnily enough, the song we all couldn't stop singing was "Feed the Birds." :)
