BWW Interview: MARY POPPINS' Leading Lady Maddy Trumble Talks Theatre Beginnings, Tour Life and More
by BWW News Desk - Mar 31, 2013

There are certain stories that when they are mentioned bring a sparkle to both the young and the young at heart. One of those, I believe, is the timeless P.L. Travers classic, Mary Poppins.

Carrying the baton, or rather, the parrot-handled umbrella when the show returns to Atlanta is Maddy Trumble and I had the pleasure of chatting with her and learning about her experience with the show. Here's a hint, it can be summed up in one word - supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! (more...)
