Some Projects by Hester Goodman

Hester Goodman as Mary Poppins

Hester Goodman as Mary Poppins

Last month, Hester Goodman of The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain posted videoclips on her YouTube channel promoting a couple of non-ukulele based projects she has worked on in the last few years.  Here’s one for “The Film Noir Show“; here’s one for “The Mary Poppins Experience.”   Each project mixes cabaret with elements of street theater, including guerrilla communication‘s refusal to notify the audience that what it is witnessing is a performance.  Notice the parts of “The Mary Poppins Experience,” about 2:09 and 2:55 into the video, where she’s on the steps of Saint Paul’s Cathedral and the crowd is looking around uneasily, as if they hope a police officer will come soon.  “The Mary Poppins Experience” is extremely funny; “The Film Noir Show” may be as well, though it’s harder to judge by the video promotion.  It certainly is striking, at any rate.
