It's kids stuff, right?

"A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, as we learned in the 1964 movie Mary Poppins. The 2006 Broadway musical based on the movie, which plays Overture Hall through March 17, adds a jolt of caffeine to the mix. The production is a relentlessly entertaining phantasmagoria of tap-dancing chimney sweeps, talking statues and flying kites – not to mention a flying English nanny. With her magical umbrella, Mary Poppins floats into an unhappy household to win over a stodgy banker and his family. By the end of the evening, she has surely won over any stodgy bankers who happen to be in the audience as well."
