I went and saw Mary Poppins last year in November, when the cast change was fairly recent (with the new Mary). I'm just wondering if they've released a new souvenir program with Scarlett or if they are still selling the first one with the original cast?
Thanks,
RYan

Thanks! That's great - I'd love to purchase one with the cast I saw. She was a terrific performer.

Will she be staying on after the fall, or be replaced?
Thanks,
RYan

Oh my God I LOVE Dress Circle.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

Spoke to two cast members on Saturday: Scarlett Strallen is leaving and Lisa O'Hare is coming back for six months (with an option of extending contract).

I think i heard that Scarlett was leaving at the beginning of November. Its such a shame, i doubt anyone will be able to beat her performance - she's AMAZING! Saying that though, Lisa O'Hare was very good in My Fair Lady. I am just slightly sceptical about someone following Scarlett's lead, they will really have to pull something out of the bag!!

"I think i heard that Scarlett was leaving at the beginning of November."

Cast change is 4th November, big cast change according to one cast member - I got to see Lisa last year in April and she was amazing as Mary Poppins, I personally liked her much more than Laura.

It will be interesting to see her interpretation of the role. Laura Michelle Kelly's take seems somewhat different to Scarlett's so it is fascinating to watch! Lisa O'Hare's Eliza was way better than Amy Nuttall's in my opinion. Based on this, Lisa O'Hare is probably a good choice as a follow up (not as good as Scarlett though). God, you wouldnt say i was a Scarlett fan would you?!

Well..I was a fan of Scarlett but Monday the 14th of Aug we went to see Mary Poppins and I was gutted that Scarlett was ill that night, instead we saw Rebecca Lock and we were blown away she was absolutely fabulous!! I have to say like I said in a previous thread vocally much better than Scarlett in my opinion!

Someone i know saw Rebecca as well and said that admittedly she was very strong vocally but perhaps got the characterisation a bit wrong. Apparently she was quite cold and harsh whereas Scarlett manages to find the cross between soft and stern. However this is just what i have been told.

Thanks for the advice! I just got my program and it's wonderful.

Question: Why did they change the logo to the modern look, I suppose, rather than the flowery Mary Poppins? Anyone know?

Apparently Disney didn't like the flowery logo and they changed it to more cartoonish to suit the Americans for the Broadway transfer and it make it less confusing they changed it in LDn as well.
Btw, does the new brochure have Gavin Creel pixs?

Thanks!
Nope, this brochure has the original Bert in it. I am going to London in a month, but purposely ordered it sent to my house for that reason. I didn't want pictures of Gavin Creel because I didn't see him - so to answer your question (in a long way) - no. :)
