There have been some line changes/omissions/additions with the new cast so Alberto has lost one of the lines that used to always be good for a laugh, the one about going out but waiting if he comes back before he returns (it's such a deliberately convoluted sentence that I can't quote it properly despite having seen the show several times!). However there is also an added bit in Act 2, which I won't say so as not to spoil it for future repeat visitors, that I loved.

Yes, thought he was brilliant as Alberto! In fact, I enjoyed his version even better than the one I saw when the show just transferred to the West End.

Originally, he was due to return to Mary Poppins in August, so probably a 6 month contract. Maybe he'll extend it now Poppins is closing on Broadway.

I was there too & loved it. As you, I can't compare to the original cast, but I thought Kristen BW was wonderful as Dale & really looked like a movie star from the era. The understudy, Alan Burkitt, was fantastic as Jerry too. In fact all of the cast were very slick & it's an elegant, quality production.
Alex Gaumond was far better than I anticipated, although I have always liked his work I've never really seen him do anything as "character" as that, very funny.
I absolutely adored the costumes too - every ensemble member was always beautifully clad, especially the girls, and the designs were so beautiful that they really enhanced the movement.

When I saw this last month I got a day seat. I just asked at the BO.
