Sensitive Song

July 31, 2010

One of the highlights of the evening at Act III was Ellen Harvey from the Mary Poppins cast singing Sensitive Song, by Lawrence O’Keefe from the musical Cops.  For anyone who’s seen Poppins at the Kennedy Center, this was a very different side of the rival governess Miss Andrews. 

I had never heard the song before, but when Will Gartshore expressed annoyance that she had beated him to it that night, I realized there may be a trend with this material.  The multiple versions on YouTube (including Will Gartshore’s) made me realize that I’m quite late on this one.
