The rumour was true! You guys so lucky you could see the best London Mary! Scarlett plays a grim Poppins but has a fun side too. She did riveting performances in London. Might not be a good singer but her dancing is stunningly elegant. Absolutely brilliant I must say. Definitely worth paying it!! Also she is an incredibly graceful lady.
Yep. I've also heard her opening night is scheduled to be October 15th.
