OTV reviews Mary Poppins

From left, Mallory King, Sophie Anderson, Tiger Ashtianti and Christian Duhamel star in Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre’s production of “Mary Poppins.”

CdA Summer Theater's production of Mary Poppins is based on the 2004 hit Broadway version of the P.L. Travers naughty nanny epic, and it differs slightly from the film. Gone are several of my favorite elements: the clucking ladies who grasp for the china and knick knack shelves every time the bell rings, and the tea party on the ceiling at Uncle Albert's. Also, Mrs. Banks is now an unfulfilled actress rather than a suffragette, and in the stage production, Mary takes the kids to visit the ancient Miss Corry's candy shop, something which didn't exist in the film. No matter, the musical performances, stage sets, lighting and magic special effects are so incredible you never even have the opportunity to stop and notice the differences at all. More here.

OTV sez, “There are only five performances left and it's got to be close to selling out, so get on it peeps!”

Sam and I loved the Broadway touring production of Mary Poppins. Are you a Poppins' fan?

Musical mania

The touring production of the smash hit “Jersey Boys” plays Wednesday through Oct. 28 at the INB Performing Arts Center.

My husband and I really enjoyed last night's performance of Jersey Boys. I seem to be on some sort of musical kick. I had a blast at  Interplayers Theatre's production of Always, Patsy Cline and I took my youngest son to Mary Poppins this summer.

Our region offers some truly knockout theater.

What is the last play/musical you saw on stage and where did you see it?
