This weekend, Nate and I are going to see Mary Poppins at Broadway San Diego. The show has four productions running on three continents throughout the rest of the year and 2012. I love that Broadway is reviving some of our favorite movie classics, like Lion King, Oz and Mary Poppins. Shows like this make for a night out that kids and parents actually both enjoy. Kids can get excited by seeing the movie version ahead of time and watching with wonder when their favorite characters come to life on stage. Parents can have a night out with the family and see a show that they get into just as much as the kids. Don't get me wrong: I love Sponge Bob as much as the next parent, but it's nice to have some entertainment options that don't involve a brightly-colored creature who lives in a pineapple under the sea.
For all you local San Diegans, Mary Poppins will be at the San Diego Civic Theater through August 21st. BroadwaySD is providing a special offer for Someday I'll Learn readers: You can get a family 4-pack of tickets in Section B for weeknight performances for just $99.
