I am just intrigued, has anyone been to see Mary Poppins and seen both Laura Michelle Kelly and Scarlet Strallen's performances in the lead role? I went to see the show yesterday and was absolutely blown away (excuse the pun!) by Scarlet's performance.

I initially thought that I would have liked to have seen Laura Michelle Kelly in the role because she is brilliant on the original london cast recording, however, in my opinion, Miss Strallen is an absolute star and her interpretation of the character is spot on. I was captivated by her performance from the moment she miraculously appeared at the beginning, to when the curtain came down at the end - so much so that it was hard to divert my eyes from her whenever she was on the stage as she had such a strong aura about her, furthermore not once did she break out of character. The vast amount of preparation she must have put into the role is staggering - everything from her posture, facial expressions, her incredible singing and dancing etc was down to a tee and i could not spot a single flaw during her charcterisation throughout. Her performance was extremely moving particularly when she exits at the end. I have immense admiration and respect for Miss Strallen after seeing her perform and will most definately be paying the theatre another visit very shortly as she, and the show overall, was practically perfect.

If Laura Michelle Kelly's interpretation was equally as amazing as Scarlet's then - wow! Thats all there is to be said!!

I have seen her a few times now in Mary Poppins and other shows and absolutely adore her for exactly what you said about her Jenny. She is a true star onstage and an absolute sweetheart at the stage door when I met her there twice.

"Oh just go and queue for day seats for Avenue Q and tell them what they missed after"

Do you think it would be difficult to get tickets on the day? My parents dont mind me seeing Avenue Q i think its just the fact that they dont want to see it.

"I have seen her a few times now in Mary Poppins and other shows and absolutely adore her for exactly what you said about her Jenny. She is a true star onstage and an absolute sweetheart at the stage door when I met her there twice."

I'd love to meet her, well when i go next time ill have to go to the stage door in the hope that i can see her. I go down to London a lot and never have i come out of a performance in which i have been literally transfixed solely on one person for practically the entire show - Scarlet will do so so well for herself, she'll be around for a long long time, the longer the better! I will have to see her at least a few more times in Mary Poppins, i wonder what her next venture will be?

Oh and in response to the 'debating about Avenue Q' conversation forming, you must must must go and see it. Its absolutely hilarious, i have never laughed so much in my life!! It seems like tickets are not selling as well as anticipated since they have gone upto 50 so you may be ok getting tickets on the day. However, to avoid disappointment i would recommend booking them prior to when you go. There are some cracking performances in Avenue Q too, particularly from Julie Atherton and Simon Lipkin. Go and see it!

Avenue Q release the front row each day so you just need to be there at the right time and queue. Not sure of the details though but shouldnt be too hard to find online try theatremonkey
