    Here is the track listing and news of the MARY POPPINS LONDON CAST ALBUM

    You'll notice some radical revisions done to accomodate the new songs:

    • JOLLY HOLIDAY is separated from SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIUS, and comes before SPOONFUL OF SUGAR
    • CHIM CHIM CHEREE is separated from STEP IN TIME
    • LET'S GO FLY A KITE is no longer the climax of the story
    • STAY AWAKE and SISTER SUFFRAGETTE are not present
    .

    It will take some getting used to. A poorly recorded audience version from the Bristol, england tryouts has been making the rounds.

    MARY POPPINS LONDON CAST ALBUM Will Fly Into Shops April 4
    By James Inverne
    24 Feb 2005


    The cast album of the Disney/Cameron Mackintosh production Mary Poppins is scheduled to be released April 4. It will be published by First Night Records.

    The set, which will cost ?14.99, will feature the original London stage cast, including Laura Michelle Kelly, Gavin Lee, David Haig, Rosemary Ashe, Linzi Hately and Jenny Galloway. The 1964 movie?s songs, by Richard and Robert Sherman, have been re-versioned by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who also provide a clutch of new songs. The new numbers include ?Practically Perfect? and ?Anything Can Happen (If You Let It).?

    The show is currently running at the Prince Edward Theatre. After a triumphant Christmas opening, audiences have remained large. In a running battle with The Producers, Poppins was nominated for nine Olivier Award nominations (to the Mel Brooks show?s eight). At the Feb. 20 ceremony, it bagged prizes for Kelly and also for Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mears? choreography.

    For more information on the show, call (0)870 850 9191.
