Day 731

For our birthdays Mum bought Tahlia and I tickets to see Mary Poppins in Sydney.  I haven't seen a musical for years.   Years and years.  To be honest I can take them or leave them ... musicals I mean .... they're just not a financial priority.  Don't get me wrong, I do love the outing, but they've got to be truly rockin' to fully capture my interest (and wallet).  I think the last one I saw may have been Mama Mia, so to go to Mary Poppins with someone else paying was kind of exciting.  Tahlia has never been to a musical so it was life changing for her.

We loved it!!  We were sitting in the third row so we were up close and person which was a bonus.  The props were amazing ... magical in fact.  And every single person out there on that stage was outstanding.   I couldn't believe how much energy they all had and that even after a matinee session that day, they still seemed to back it up that evening with 110% effort.  The dancing and singing was so full on.  Of course Mary Poppins was the crowd favourite but I have to say that I absolutely loved Bert.  Matt Lee is one hell of an amazing dancer .... and with a voice to match .... wow!! And when he climbed the wall and then danced on the ceiling ... well ... he left Lionel Richie for dead.

Anyway, as I said, I don't get out much so I might not be the most informed of judges, but I reckon Mary Poppins is worth a visit.  We definitely feel a little more magical for having seen it.

Thanks Mum!!


  1. I would love to see this, I would probably be able to remember most of the words as well I watched the move so many times :-)

  2. Oh yay! I'm so excited! I've got tickets for next month and I can't wait! Thanks for sharing! :-)


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
