"Another stand out performance is from Alissa Anderson as Miss Andrew, who plays the nasty, mean-spirited nanny returned from George Banks childhood who unsuccessfully tries to replace Mary Poppins. Her demeanor and deep, rich vocals scared me from my seat in a truly entertaining way, and I cheered when Mary Poppins gives her what’s coming to her. It is a perfectly played performance of an antithetical villain." Front Row Reviewers

    "Nanny Andrew (played perfectly by Alissa Anderson) made a big ol’ entrance, immediately taking over the stage, although Mary Poppins’ second-act entrance (and Nanny Andrew's exit) raised the bar for comings and goings on stage even further — in fact, raised it to new heights." Deseret News
