Flying through the air with her almighty umbrella and her bag filled with good nature and charm, Mary Poppins, the nanny with a magical effect on children, as well as adults, opened last night at the Kravis Center For The Performing Arts in West Palm Beach last night to a grateful and warm-welcoming audience.
Probably the inspiration for the reality show hit, Nanny: 911, where a British nanny comes to America to straighten out families in turmoil with unruly children, Mary Poppins brings the same sort of formula to the stage play, but adds her own brand of psychology and magic to the equation. Mary Poppins is a play that features the unhappy and dysfunctional Banks family who, unknowingly, needs the help of the magical, wisdom-filled super-nanny. Mary provides the disipline that the family is in dire need of and charms the pants off the younger set in the audience, while giving the adult element ideas to build on within their own family.
For two-and-a-half hours, Mary Poppins delights both old and young with her philosophy and magical prowess. With fantastic stage illusions and acrobatic flying, along with amazing Hollywood-style set decor, Mary Poppins is a sure bet to satisfy your broadway hunger for the arts.
