Could a classic film ever be improved? Well, it seems that "anything can happen, if you let it..."
This CD is a perfect example of the great job talented people can do when they decide to create something new based on existing material that is already perfect. Listen to the new versions of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" or "Jolly Holiday" and you'll understand what I mean. The new "Step in Time" is much more intriguing than the film's original version. Pay attention to how skilfully George Stiles (music) and Anthony Drewe (lyrics) incorporate the whole idea of "A spoonful of sugar" into "Brimstone and Treacle". I'm sure P.L. Travers, the author of the original books, would have loved both this song and the musical confrontation between Mary Poppins and Miss Andrew. But of all the new songs, "Anything can happen" really stands out as the perfect finale. And the "Shooting Star" is such a moving coda to the play. And it perfectly captures the bitter-sweet feelings of Mary Poppins's departure as this was described by P.L. Travers in the last chapter of the third Mary Poppins book ("Mary Poppins Opens the Door").
I really liked the creative team's efforts to be more faithful to the original books than the film was. I agree with those who say that the stage show does more credit to Travers's heroine than the Walt Disney film--although both the film and the original score by Richard and Robert Sherman will remain perennial favourites of mine, and they deserve to be so!
The show's cast is superb. Laura Michelle Kelly is an ideal Mary Poppins. As Julie Andrews herself said some weeks ago, the future lies in her hands and she has to carry the torch from now on. And this is true for Gavin Lee as well.

On my way coming home from seeing this flawless stage show, I couldn't get some of the new songs out so I just had to buy the cast recording - something rare for me.
We all know (and love) the original songs, and 90% of them are included in this recording, but it's the additional material that makes this musical a work of genius. Hats off to George and Anthony for creating the new material which really helps flesh out Cameron's vision for the performance. Stand outs are "Practically Perfect" and "Temper Temper" - and "Anything can happen". The only one a bit hard on the ears is "Brimstone and Treacle" - but, in the fashion of "Temper Temper" (with a hint of the blasting pipe organ a la Phantom of the opera) it's meant to stand out of place within the original Sherman Brothers sound. Their additions to the original songs work very well, especially in "Jolly Holiday" with a glorious counterpoint section (just before a wonderfully jazzy end) at blending new and old material heard in the song. Some of the new lyrics are genius too: "To see a statue/dance like that you/can't beleive your eyes..." Also a well done to George Stiles for doing wonderful dance and vocal arrangements - something the composer rarely does nowadays.
As usual, with most of Cameron's productions, Bill Brohn's orchestrations are top notch. This recording is no exception, with a wonderful use of five pianos it really fleshes out the, already, large traditional broadway orchestra line up.
The cast is top notch, but every review will tell you that. The only slight dissapointing aspect is that David Haig's (Mr Banks)delightful rendition of "Supercala..." is not included on the CD. Generally, all the songs included in the show are there.

As regular patrons to West End shows we have to say this one flies high above the others. The lead performances are superb, with Laura Michelle Kelly and Gavin Lee making the characters of Mary and Bert their own. Particular praise must go to Jenny Galloway for her warm hearted yet bombastic Mrs Brill, the house keeper, comic timing of the hightest degree. There are numerous new songs as well as new treatments of the film classics, the complete package is a work of brilliance. The direction, choreography, orchestrations and set were top notch, the only slight criticism in the show was the sound. Musical Director, Nick Davies, conducts the show with great sensitivity. We saw him conduct Martin Guere at the Prince Edward some years ago and My Fair Lady at Drury Lane, he seems to have such dramatic understanding when he conducts, a joy to watch adding to the spectacle of live theatre.
Equally so with the CD, which is as vibrant and entertaining as the show itself, giving us both such wonderful memories of practically.....a perfect evening at the theatre.
Thank you.

I have been to see the show twice and waited with eager anticipation for the soundrack recording. I was not disappointed. The original songs and the new ones sound fantastic, especially 'Practically Perfect' and my favourite 'Anything Can Happen'. The booklet accompanying the CD contains all the lyrics so you can sing along to your hearts content. Laura Michelle Kelly is fantastic in the lead role but Gavin Lee who plays Bert is without doubt the star of the show.
