I searched for the answer, but I couldn't find it so please don't crucify me. Does anyone know when Ashley Brown and Gavin Lee are leaving "Mary Poppins"? Thanks! :)

More importantly, what day is Fantasia replacing Ashley Brown?

Gavin Lee told me personally on the back of a signed photo he sent me that both him and Ashley are leaving the show in mid-October. In the letter I wrote to him, I had mentioned that I had hoped to one day see the show, but I live in Minneapolis, so it's difficult to get out to NYC. His exact words were:

"Hope you get to see "Mary P" soon - Ashley and I are in the show until Mid-Oct. Then we will go off on the 1st Nat'l Tour, stopping off in Minneapolis in Sept '09!!"

So there's your answer from Gavin personally :)!! Mid-Oct!

August 18th, the same day Constantine replaces Gavin and Anthony Rapp plays Mchael.
He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

Thanks all! :)

Especially you Foster. You always answer me so thoroughly. I think Fantasia should actually replace Laura Bell Bundy though. She was a blonde once, right?

Gavin is leaving a little earlier than that. I'm pretty sure it's Oct 12th, but definitely somewhere around there.
If the audience could do better, they'd be up here on stage and I'd be out there watching them. - Ethel Merman

Just bumping to see if there's further information on this topic. I'd like to see these two actors' last performances before they hit the tour, so does anyone have updated info on when AB and GL's last date is at the New Amsterdam? Thanks in advance.

Well, Scarlett Strallen's first show is to be on 15th October, so I assume Ashley is leaving the Sunday (12th October) before.

From Scarlett herself since I know her. 15th October is the date she was given as her first show to be.

I know that Sarah Pfisterer was auditioning for the role and if she is not getting Mary then there is a chance that she would be getting cast as Mrs. Banks. Does anyone know when Rebecca Luker is leaving?

is it me or is this one of the more underrated musicals in new york city. I mean it is a movie onstage but it is rather a great production. I loved it!
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

So, Ashley is doing the Guys and Dolls concert the weekend of the 10th-12th. Perhaps her last day is the week before (which would be the 5th)?? Maybe Strallen will start a week early?

Anyone have any ideas?

I purchased tix for 10/9 hoping to see Ashley. When I bought the tix I didn't know she was doing the "Guys and Dolls" concert in Indy. I do hope I get to see Gavin though.

Will try to find out, cannot promise anything though as Scarlett left for New York today and I haven't heard anything else but the date I originally said.

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.
