I can't wait for my "Spoon-full of Sugar."

"Mary Poppins" opens next Wednesday night for a weeks run, at DeVos Performance Hall, from Broadway Grand Rapids.

The show is based more on P.L. Travers’ original book that the popular movie with Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke was. It's been 'wowing' audiences with its technical brilliance and a humdinger of a set, featuring the Banks family’s huge Victorian house opening like a storybook.

Critics are saying “this is the rare touring production that over-delivers on every level!” Featuring the irresistible story and unforgettable songs from one of the most popular Disney films of all time, plus brand-new breathtaking dance numbers and spectacular stage-craft, MARY POPPINS is everything you could ever want in a hit Broadway show! So get swept up in the fun of this high-flying musical the New York Post gives 4 out of 4 stars and calls “a perfect piece of musical theater.”

You can get tickets at DeVos Place box office, Ticketmaster outlets, 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.
