Eddie Redmayne’s ‘edgy Mary Poppins’
We witness Eddie’s self-deprecating comic skills — and hear his lovely voice a cappella, (a la Empty Chairs at Empty Tables) —in this “Life’s a Pitch” short film by Young Vic. His pitch is a dark and edgy musical about an overly intense “man who spends his days with children in the 21st century…mothers draw their little ones to them, as if the one with the problem is me.”
Note the quiver in his cheek and the rolling tear. He always gives his all.
