The ‘Fantastic’ music of Mary Poppins Returns

By Bruce Steele

Lin-Manuel Miranda is Alexander Hamilton no more. Backstage at Shepperton Studios in London, he’s in full working-class “leerie” garb: a newsboy-like cap, red waistcoat (that’s a “vest” to you Americans) and loose, well-worn jacket and trousers.
