Mary Poppins

Wednesday night we went to the Kennedy Center with Miss Carol to see Mary Poppins. We asked the guy behind us to take our picture. He had one chance to get this nice shot of us before the usher told us no picture taking was allowed. I pointed out that we weren't doing anything wrong. It was that guy in the row behind us!

The Kennedy Center was very beautiful, if somewhat stark. It had the feel of something built in the 60s. Fortunately it had a lot of leg space, so we loved it. Mary Poppins was a lot of fun. The singing and dancing were great. The plot was somewhat changed (no suffragettes, and more introspection on what it means to be the wife of a self-important man). And there was no fidelity fiduciary song! Despite the lack of Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, it was still very entertaining. I liked the Greek statues that came alive in the park. It was also fun seeing Mary Poppins fly out with her umbrella. I wish I could do that!

  1. I can't believe that you ratted the guy behind you. Just goes to show, that no good deed goes unpunished.
