Mary Poppins dropped by City Hall.
Julie Andrews, who won an Oscar for her title role in the 1964 film, is in Chicago with the national tour of the musical comedy “The Boy Friend.”
Mayor Richard Daley proclaimed Tuesday “Julie Andrews Day” in the city, calling the 70-year-old actress-singer an “entertainment legend.”
“I love your city, and I’m very proud to bring our show to your theater and hope to come back many, many times,” Andrews said.
She is directing this version of “The Boy Friend,” which is scheduled to run through Saturday at the Chicago Theatre. But in 1954, it was the show that first brought her to Broadway from England. She turned 19 the day after her Broadway debut.
Andrews went on to star on stage in “My Fair Lady” and “Camelot.”
Her screen credits include roles in 1965’s “The Sound of Music” and 1982’s “Victor/Victoria,” for which she received Oscar nominations.
