“Happy 80th Birthday, Dame Julie Andrews”

Julie-Andrews_Mary-Poppins-4

One of my role models growing up was, of course, Julie Andrews. Mary Poppins is still a work of art today. She has such a long history on the stage–Genevieve in Camelot, Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, not to mention all of her film roles (another post).  This upcoming year, she will be directing My Fair Lady at the Sydney Opera House, if it wasn’t so far away, I’d audition!

Happy birthday, my dear. May you continue to inspire more young woman, just like me. (Here are 8 things you may or may not have known about her.)
