Mary Poppins @ Kansas City Starlight Theatre
I performed The Role Of Bert In Kansas City Starlight’s Production Of Mary Poppins.
Kansas City Starlight Is One Of The Largest Venues In The Country, Producing Theatre On A Grand Scale For 8,000 Patrons Each Night. This Was A Bucket List Experience For Me! The Show Ran July 24-Aug 2, 2015.
Matthew LaBanca is excellent as Bert. I previously mentioned his narration role — which is excellent — but his hints of amore with Mary, his interactions with the children, his accent, the way his acting ties the plot together as much as Leaming’s, is excellent. You may call him the unsung (except he sings quiet well) hero of the show. - Jonathan Lightfoot, Be Swift, Be Precise
