Practically Perfect!

Last night my family and I ventured to Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) to see the awaited brilliance of Thomas Schumacher and Cameron Mackintosh, creators and producers behind the stage sensation Mary Poppins. To say the production was magical has to be the understatement of the year- it was nothing short of magnificent. Being a regular thespian, (yes it is a real term to describe us theatre enthusiasts) I usually categorise shows into two definitives- Razzle Dazzle and Wow Factor. Aside from Wicked, Mary Poppins is definitely one show that deserved both of these titles. An array of colour dispersed between the decadent sets, props and costumes, emersed me within the enchanted setting of the story. The magic and illusions on stage were astonishing to say the least, particularly the part where the angelic nanny flew through the audience. WOW!; There were strings?

While I am a massive fan of one, Julie Andrews, the voice on this young (understudy of Poppins), Sarah Bakker was flawless and at times she sounded uncannily like the original. Last night awoke my new, sudden urge to pick up my tap shoes and clickity clack across some floor boards. Thank you Matt Lee- my parents will love revarnishing the polished floor. If any Brisbanites know of some ultra modern tap schools, holla at your sista! To the rest of you, if the opportunity arises to see Mary Poppins you must go! It was the most spectacular show I've seen yet!
