Con O’Shea-Creal is the multitalented sometimes chimney sweep, sometimes artist, always entertaining Bert. His walk across the ceiling of the stage in the second act is a phenomenal piece of artistry.
The Banks family, especially the children, Jane and Michael are a delight.
The dance ensemble is a delight to watch as they accompany Mary, Bert and the children in several very colorful numbers. This is the kind of musical with the wonderful dance numbers that makes ones heart jump for joy.
