  • Mary Poppins to land in Los Angeles

    latimes.com calendar section: http://www.calendarlive.com/stage/la-et-ahmanson25mar25,0,6254551story

    REVISED:
    Apparently the link above doesn't work... sigh... her's some snippets:

    "The 2008-09 season opener will be "9 to 5: The Musical" (Sept. 20-Oct. 19), based on the 1980 film that starred Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton as corporate secretaries out for revenge against their chauvinist boss.

    It will feature music and lyrics by Parton and a book by Patricia Resnick, the film's co-author. Directed by Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello ("Wicked"), the show is set to star "The West Wing's" Allison Janney in Tomlin's role, Stephanie J. Block in Fonda's and Megan Hilty in Parton's. Stage veteran Marc Kudisch will portray their unscrupulous superior."


    "Finally, the North American tour of the lavish London and New York presentation of "Mary Poppins," based on P.L. Travers' stories and the 1964 Walt Disney film, will begin in March 2009 in Chicago, and its limited run at the Ahmanson will begin that November.

    With Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman's classic songs, book by Julian Fellowes and additional songs, music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the tour is to include the entire original creative team, led by director Richard Eyre and co-director and choreographer Matthew Bourne."


    I know that if you purchase a season subsription right now you get "priority seating" for Mary Poppins.

          Somehow your link was missing a period before "story". The link below should work.

                  Oh dear! That's one of the best parts of the show! Wait until you see how they've removed every ounce of magic from Jolly Holiday and Spoonful of Sugar

                      Is Laura Michelle Kelly playing Poppins when they visit L.A.? I know she played Mary in the London version of Mary Poppins.

                        Saw it on Broadway last year, very impressed!

                        Though, I think I'll save my money and hit the other shows being planned for LA. Spamalot will be in San Francisco in Spring 2009. *ponder*
