Marry Poppins was one of my all time favorite movies as a child. When I asked the boys if they had ever seen it, I was so sad when they said no! Where have I been all these years that they have never seen it! Because of this, I am VERY excited that MARY POPPINS is bringing its own brand of Broadway magic to theaters across the country, which has the Daily News calling it a “Roof-Raising, Toe-Tapping, High-Flying Extravaganza!” This spectacular hit has astonished over seven million people worldwide with its pure Broadway magic. With four productions currently running on three continents, Mary Poppins is one of the biggest stage musical successes in recent years to come out of London and New York.
The consummate Disney production features the irresistible story and unforgettable songs from one of the most popular Disney films of all time, plus brand-new breathtaking dance numbers and astonishing stage-craft to make it 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 certifiable super hit!” I love this storyline because it teaches so many things at once for adults and children alike!

On behalf of Universal Pictures , I am excited to tell you about Les Misérables! Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe!! It is still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. I saw this on stage MANY MANY years ago and it was absolutely amazing. Helmed by The King’s Speech’s Academy Award-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs—including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”—Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.
If you have never seen this performance, I highly recommend seeing it on stage if you can. It’s a wonderful see! Les Misérables hits theaters on Christmas Day.
