by Matt Tamanini

(7/24/2014) - There is something very special, even magical, in the wind in Lawrenceville this summer. As he did with last year's LES MISERABLES, director Justin Anderson has found exciting ways to bring new life to a beloved show that we know so well. Under his capable direction, MARY POPPINS is transformed from the classic movie of chalk drawings and dancing penguins into a poignant tale of a loving family in need of saving from its own prosperity, with a pinch of magic on top. This family-friendly classic, which runs through August 31st, is a can't-miss for fans of wonder and magic, both young and old.

It begins with four librettists hopping on the A train at 207th Street and writing the books for four 15-minute musicals, all set on the A train. Before each of the teams begin their journey, they pick a number between 3 and 5 to set the number of characters, then they chose that many headshots from a blind draw to determine which actors will be in each piece.
