9/29/12: Mary Poppins The Musical at the Hanover Theatre

We went to see Mary Poppins at the Hanover Theatre in Worcester, MA on Thursday night.  The show really was amazing and so well done.  The sets were impressive and the actors and actresses were excellent.  Of course being a Disney production we didn't expect anything less.   
One little detail that I love at the Hanover Theatre is that they really get in to the theme of the show.  When you were walking in to the theatre there were umbrellas outside as decorations.
You can see them here also in the fountain.  Also the ticket takers were dressed up as chimney sweepers.  It is so cute that they always do this.  When we went to Shrek the ticket takers were dressed up like Shrek.  It just makes the experience  little more special for children.
There were two children that were in the show that were really good.  I am always amazed at children that can sing and act so well.  I especially liked the tap number that was in the show.  Here is the link to the touring cast.
At one point Bert walked up along the wall and along the top of the stage.  That was extremely cool.  Everything was done so wonderfully and kept the kids engaged for the full show.  I really can't describe how breathtaking it was.  Especially when Mary Poppins took flight.
You can buy tickets here for 09/30 (1:00 pm, 6:30 pm)
More about the show:
MARY POPPINS is bringing its own brand of Broadway magic to theaters across the country, which has Variety raving, “This is the rare touring production that over-delivers on every level!!” This spectacular hit has astonished over seven million people worldwide with its pure Broadway magic. With four productions currently running on three continents, MARY POPPINS is one of the biggest stage musical successes in recent years to come out of London and New York.
The consummate Disney production features the irresistible story and unforgettable songs from one of the most popular Disney films of all time, plus brand-new breathtaking dance numbers and astonishing stage-craft to make it everything you could ever want in a hit Broadway show. So get swept up in the fun of this high-flying musical the New York Post gives 4 out of 4 stars and calls “a certifiable super hit!”
Disclosure: I received a family four pack of tickets for the show to promote it. All opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.
