This week, MARY POPPINS celebrated five years on Broadway with Mary herself (Steffanie Leigh), along with a crew of Chimney Sweeps "flipping the switch" and lit the world-famous Empire State Building's tower lights blue, the signature color of the production. It was also CHICAGO's fifteenth anniversary, which was celebrated with the return of many who helped to bring the 1996 revival to life. And that's not all: BILLY ELLIOT also celebrated an anniversary, its third, with all three of the 2009 Tony Award winning 'Billy's joining the curtain call.
