Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes bring Suri to see 'Mary Poppins'

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes treated daughter Suri Cruise to an evening out with "Mary Poppins" at the Music Center in downtown L.A. on Wednesday night.

Suri, by the way, is an old pro at this "musical" thing -- while Katie was rehearsing for the drama "All My Sons" on Broadway in 2008, mama took the wee fashion plate to see "Mary Poppins" on Broadway too.

The Ministry assumes, of course, that the West Coast show was much better. (Hey, Suri's wide awake in the photo above! After New York? Not so much. OK, maybe it was just late.)

Other celebs who've seen "Mary Poppins"? In L.A. recently, David Beckham brought sons Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo. Meanwhile in New York,  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie saw the Jan. 3 matinee with their four oldest kids, Maddox, Shiloh, Zahara and Pax. Amy Adams, the Jonas Brothers, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett have also been spotted in the New York audience. 

Wonder which other family-friendly celebs might attend Los Angeles performances before the musical closes Feb. 7?
