Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Last night I got to watch the Mary Poppins musical in Sacramento! Mary Poppins is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies. I adore Julie Andrews (who doesn’t?). I seriously wish she was my grandmother.

I’ve been wanting to watch this show ever since I got word that it was being developed a few years back, and while I did enjoy it, I have to say I definitely prefer the film version. The musical was a bit more serious than I thought it would be. I took a theatre appreciation class once and the professor said that the show dealt with a lot of family dynamics. In the musical, the children were snobby (particularly Jane), the dad was way more uptight, and the mom wasn’t all sister-suffragette-like. The changes that were made totally made sense for the stage adaptation though. There’s no way they could’ve recreated the “Jolly Holiday” scene for the stage. And it still had that bit of Disney magic, so all was well in the end. Plus, I got a Mary Poppins umbrella! The parrot’s head is kinda heavy, but I am going to look so fancy during the rainy season, I don’t even care.

For my outfit that day, I decided to be a bit of a dork and base it around Mary’s blue and red color scheme. I think I kinda ended up looking a bit like Molly from the American Girl series though, which isn’t too bad since she was my favorite anyway! πŸ˜€
