I have just read the confirmation that Lisa O'Hare will be the new Mary Poppins..has anyone seen her before as she was the U/S for Laura Michelle Kelly.

I havent seen her but many people who have, said that she was very good. She's got a tough act to follow after Scarlett thats for sure!

well..I have to say I loved Scarlett but I saw her U/S in August Rebecca Lock and I have to say Rebecca's singing voice was much better.

Lisa O'Hare was amazing when I saw her as Mary Poppins in April 2005. Not sure how often she was on as she was "just" 2nd understudy, but she looked perfect as Mary, her singing was so beautiful, so clear, great acting, the right mix between being stern and kind and an excellent dancer. Am looking forward to seeing her in November (as much as I will miss Scarlett (not Rebecca as didn't like her too much, yes great voice, but far too wooden!)).

Being one of the biggest Scarlett fans, of course i am going to be biased, but i think that Scarlett brought something extra to Mary Poppins which i think will be sorely missed when she leaves. But all good things must come to an end unfortunately.

Saying this however, i saw Lisa O'Hare as Eliza Dolittle and she was fantastic. Good luck to her.
