What’s it like to be practically perfect in every way? No one would know better than the current Star of Disney’s Broadway production of Mary Poppins – Ashley Brown. Backstage.com has a long interview with the rising star.

"One of Mary’s most famous lines is ‘I never explain anything,’ " Brown says. "Everyone wants to know where she came from, and it’s never explained. I feel Mary has a higher calling whenever she disappears into the sky. I approached the role in a very real way. I don’t view the situations as fantastical. I treat them truthfully."

Sounds like a marvelous performance. Expect to see even more about the show in a future edition of LaughingPlace.com’s Tales from the Laughing Place Disney magazine.
