Mary Poppins' Andrew Keenan-Bolger Shows Off His Spit-Spot Backstage Quarters

Mary Poppins' Andrew Keenan-Bolger Shows Off His Spit-Spot Backstage Quarters
I keep a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos in my dressing room drawer at all times.

As Mary Poppins' dutiful house servant Robertson Ay, Andrew Keenan-Bolger helps ensure the Banks family's London home stays in tip-top shape. When it comes to his own space at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Keenan-Bolger likes to surround himself with fond reminders of his show-biz sisters, actress Celia and playwright Maggie, as well as his favorite showtime snacks. Keenan-Bolger invited Broadway.com into his dressing room to show off five of his favorite possessions. Take a look below!

“For Christmas this year my sister [playwright Maggie Keenan-Bolger] made me a sock monkey out of two American Apparel socks. She made one for my other sister [actress Celia Keenan-Bolger] too so they guard over both of our dressing rooms. It’s a good luck charm.”


"I took all these Polaroids in college and when I was on tour with The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. I went on the Scripps National Spelling Bee [website] and found words that pertain to each picture. There’s one of my sisters and me, so we [wrote] 'consanguineous' on it, which is an adjective that means 'from the same blood origin.'"


“I have a lot of down time, so I make videos on my MacBook Pro which is great. I’m working on a web series right now called Submissions Only, so I edit them here.”


“This chicken and hand were left to me by my predecessor, Mark Price. I guess he didn’t want to throw them away. They don’t have any true meaning, but it’s like finding the Incan ruins of the person before me, so I pay homage to them every day.”


"I keep a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos in my dressing room drawer at all times. They’re my absolute favorite food, like desert island favorite food. There will be times where I haven’t eaten dinner, and they have all the food groups in them…red and cheese!"
