Surprisingly milking all her scenes for what they're worth was Jenny Galloway. It was an OK melody and had some nice spots for Kelly's voice to shine, but lacked the energy of TEMPER, TEMPER and changed the dynamic of the scenes leading to the ending of Act 1 completely.
I enjoyed getting the Banks kids scared out of their minds. I highly recommend checking out MARY POPPINS now that Kelly is in the role. That blows because I'm thinking more that the change is not necessary.
(Not that I didn't like Ashley Brown; I thought she was phenomenal. But Kelly's Mary is definitely much more serious than Brown's, and she doesn't play the laughs that Brown did, e.g., the funky way Mary ascends the stairs of the Banks home was eschewed by Kelly completely.
It's not great either, perhaps not even a good show, but I can't say I didn't have fun watching it, especially during the first act.
The show definitely suffers during the second act since the plot really could just be resolved in 10 minutes that they turn into another hour (especially since the show seems like it's about to end at three different points).
Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.
I was there, too, and can attest that Kelly is pretty sensational.
I think Kelly's performance is worth taking a trip to the New Amsterdam.
