Mary Poppins is ‘Practically Perfect’ in Every Way

By: Near West Theatre | May 10, 2017

Mary Poppins opened last weekend to a sold out opening night! And the audience has been buzzing ever since!

"There are top notch performances by everyone involved. Meg Martinez is perfect in the lead and brings a perfect nanniness to the role. Her singing voice is wonderfully suited for the number of songs required, in a variety of ranges. Devon Turchan as Bert does a delightful turn as the Jack of all trades, singing, dancing and acting with aplomb." - Mark Horning

“Mary Poppins was awesome! Great cast and amazing crew! Love the chimney sweep scene!” – Audience Member

“…there is one word to describe the whole musical performance - supercalifragilisticexpialidious - the whole performing cast, the scenery, including the smooth changeover of scenery, the costumes, the singing voices and choreography - it should be shown in London's West End theaters it was so professional.” – Audience Member

"By definition, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious simply means fantastic, wonderful, and extraordinarily good. The same can be said of the Near West Theatre production of Mary Poppins. The show has it all—huge dance numbers, tender moments, wonderful singing, laugh out loud moments, and most importantly, a flying Mary Poppins. It is sure to be a sellout throughout its run as it is the best theater value in town. No spoonful of sugar is needed for this show; it is sweet enough on its own." - Mark Horning

“Every character was as good as the next one, well done to you all, I hope you receive a standing ovation and are sold out every night” – Audience Member

 "Andrew Narten as George Banks has the difficult task of transforming from stuffy British banker to loving father and husband. He does so convincingly. Cory Markowitz is the put upon Winifred Banks, who is the glue that holds the family together. She does a smashing job relating with each character on a personal level and has a beautiful singing voice to boot." - Mark Horning

“I was so impressed with Near West Theatre I will definitely be returning” – Audience Member
