“If you’re going to produce the show with Bay Area actors right now, it would be hard to top San Francisco Playhouse’s leads El Beh as the “practically perfect” nanny and Wiley Naman Strasser as plucky chimney sweep Bert. Both actors burst with innate charm. No matter what roles they play, you can’t help but root for them.“ -Lily Janiak, San Francisco Chronicle, November 19, 2018

“El Beh’s Mary sends chills up the spine with the addition of something extremely peculiar and oddly threatening … This Mary Poppins clearly takes sides, and she … is clearly more on the side of the scruffy, working class, possibly homeless street artist and chimney sweep Bert (played with great charisma and conspicuously eloquent dancing by Wiley Naman Strasser)... While there is a hard queer edge to these two characters … there is no shortage of charm and magic either.” -Charles Kruger, TheatreStorm, November 25, 2018

“The show looks fantastic, from the opening with narrator/jack of all trades Bert (versatile Wiley Naman Strasser) serenading on a rooftop, playing an accordion, warning about dark clouds gathering at the home of the upper-class Banks family, to the close, after the group has been touched by nanny Mary Poppins’ (appropriately enigmatic yet sassy El Beh) enchanting powers … Beh and Strasser provide just the right amount of nuance to their supernatural characters (and dance and sing up a storm).” -Leslie Katz, SF Examiner, November 24, 2018
