Okay, I will not be able to watch this when it happens, but this news still makes me so stupidly excited. I love Laura's Mary Poppins first and foremost (sorry Julie, and don't hit me, joeytheteapot), thus I am so so so glad that she's getting to revisit the role.

Laura’s Poppin onto Broadway

Laura Michelle Kelly, the original stage Mary Poppins, will soon be ladling spoonfuls of sugar over Broadway.

The award-winning actress has been rehearsing with director Richard Eyre in New York. She will resume the famous nanny role on October 12 for a limited run.

Laura Michelle created Mary five years ago at the Prince Edward Theatre, London after try-outs in Bristol.

She won rave reviews for her crisp interpretation of the woman who swoops into Cherry Tree Lane to care for the Banks children. She was based more on the character as written by P.L. Travers than in the movie version with Julie Andrews.

When the time came to open on Broadway, Laura Michelle didn’t go with it. There were rumours of some terrible backstage row involving Laura Michelle and Cameron Mackintosh, who produced the show jointly with Disney, but no one can actually remember what the falling-out was all about.

Rest of article.Collapse )


SOURCE

The bit about the row with Cameron MacKintosh (if true) does explain why Laura hasn't reprised the role when the other Marys (Scarlett, Lisa, Ashley) have crossed productions all over the place.

I have a question about the My Little Pony cartoon. Was it ever mentioned how old Megan, Danny and Molly are? This amazon review says that Danny is ten and Molly is seven, but I honestly can't remember if that was explicitly mentioned in the movie. No mention on how old Megan is, either.

How old do YOU think they are in the movie and tv series?

I personally think Megan is a pre-teen in the movie. She's certainly mature enough to be at least twelve, but anything beyond that starts to give me a headache, because I have a hard time trying to imagine a teenager realistically frolicking in a magical land with pastel-coloured ponies.

Realistic is the wrong word to use in conjunction with My Little Pony, but omg, don't judge me, I do think about these things.
