WASHINGTON, July 1 (UPI) --
U.S. first lady Michelle Obama
and daughters Sasha and Malia attended the first Washington performance of "Mary Poppins
" Thursday night.
The North American tour of the show is playing the Kennedy Center through Aug. 22.
The musical's producers said Obama decided to see the show after watching a number from "Mary Poppins" performed at last month's taping of "America Celebrates July 4th at Ford's Theatre," which is to air on ABC Friday night.
