BROADWAY — In case you haven't heard, the very long-awaited sequel to "Mary Poppins" opened in theaters Wednesday.
In honor of the occasion, the stars of "Mary Poppins Returns" stopped by "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Tuesday for some Broadway-style publicity. Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Blunt joined James Corden for an impressive feat of musical prowess: they performed 22 musicals in just 12 minutes.
As a huge fan of musicals, I absolutely loved the video, but there's definitely a little something in it for everyone. Miranda, Blunt and Corden took on everything from "Mamma Mia" to "Les Miserables" and even had costume changes for each segment. At one point, Kermit the Frog made an appearance, and Blunt and Corden also briefly reprised their roles from the 2014 film "Into the Woods."
Yesterday's Have You Seen This?
The very best part, however, might just be how much fun this trio is having reenacting their favorite Broadway hits. These are clearly three people who love musicals, and their joy — even as they race to get all 22 songs in before the time runs out — is infectious.
So go ahead and clear 12 minutes from your schedule and press play on the video. It'll make you smile and will be worth your time. And after, if you're feeling inspired to go see "Mary Poppins Returns," read our review of the film here.
