Ten of us went on a retreat in Pennsylvania and then off to New York City to see the sites. Now this group is steeped in Christianity and most work full time for the Lord. With that in mind, we decided to see a Broadway Show called Mary Poppins.
Even though Mary Poppins has a somewhat messiah complex with a magic umbrella, we decided that it would be a fairly clean childlike performance worth seeing.
Settling into our seats, we waited in excited anticipation. The curtain rose and the cast glided across the stage, oozing with uncompromising talent. Suddenly, male statues jumped off their stands in light gray, see-through leotards with tiny leaves strategically sewn in place to cover their dainty dangling male parts to dance and sing to a musical tune.
As our group squirmed in their seats, they replied, “I don’t remember this being in the original story!”
News flash — Broadway has it’s very own version of Mary Poppins!
