Thus entering its upcoming tenth year, and many more years to come according to market reports of its success and interests by the thaetre tickets purchasers " Theres not an end in sight."
Thus looking back: Decades have passed since the Movie Mary Poppins, staring both Julie Andrews at the top of her career, and Dick Van Dyke, as Bert, long time TV comic partner of Mary Tyler Moore, busrt with its magic of music, costumes, scenic sets, the better surprise of clever inclusion of annimate cartoon segments, and very up beat choreography on the Movie Screens, never missing Dick's very rubbery dancing legs at the same, and still the theme, dance, fun entertainment appeal, and music still engrosses the children of today. Of course we can not and must never over-look the importance of those who are just as child like today as they were back when the movie was released.
Both New York City reviewers, though they are themselves becoming a rare breed, and the ticket purchasers all agree, " That the same delightful fun filled energy and profound human youthful teared eyed affects are just as powerful in the stage productions as it did on the big screen decades earlier." Except no one has been able to copy the rubbery dancing legs of Dick Van Dyke.
