'Poppins' stars reprise in L.A.

October 13, 2009|From a Times Staff Writer

Ashley Brown and Gavin Lee, who starred in the original 2006 Broadway production of "Mary Poppins," will reprise their roles in the touring version that opens at the Ahmanson Theatre in downtown L.A. next month.

Brown will play Poppins, the flying nanny, and Gavin will portray Bert, the chimney sweep -- a role he also played in London.

Meanwhile, in other stage casting news, Christopher Lloyd and John Larroquette have been set to star in "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical," which will open at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood next month.
