I mentioned the movie in this previous post about some of my own favorite things. Now, it's a musical too. Currently touring the U.S. And I went to see it last weekend.

Proper credit for this experience must be given to my very thoughtful husband who gifted me with tickets at Christmas. (thanks again honey!) The Ahmanson Theater at the Music Center in L.A. is a lovely, intimate setting that was filled to the brim with the fantastic, larger-than-life production... complete with Mary and her magic umbrella flying off the stage and out over the audience at the end!
Some of you may recall that my single, all-purpose New Year's resolution was to "lighten up", with have more fun falling under the umbrella of that intention. Seeing Mary Poppins on stage was a most supercalifragilistic step in that direction.
