Mary Poppins description

Mary Poppins – Winner of 7 Tony Awards

You've probably seen the 1964 film, a wonderful British classic whose lovely plot and sweet show tunes appeal to people of every age. If it reminds you of your childhood, this theatre production will bring the past zooming back in the most delightful way. If you're only little and have never experienced Mary yet, you're in for a huge treat. Everyone loves Mary Poppins, and that's why it makes such a lot of sense to grab tickets while they're still available.

Make your way to the Prince Edward theatre, to where Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's acclaimed stage musical of the kids' classic Mary Poppins returns. The show features glorious, rousing music and lyrics by the talented Sherman Brothers, with extra lyrics and tunes from George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. Combining the original children's books by P. L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film, Julian Fellowes' new book merges everything to exceptional effect.

The original 2004 production was directed by Richard Eyre, co-directed by Matthew Bourne and choreographed by Stephen Mear. It proved a smash hit on trials in Bristol and sold out at the Prince Edward theatre. It remains the only Disney musical to premiere in Britain. Laura Michelle Kelly played Mary back then, and won a well-deserved Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her role in 2005. When it transferred to Broadway in late 2006 it enjoyed nominations for seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, and won the award for Best Scenic Design. This time around the show stars the excellent Zizi Strallen and Charlie Stemp.

A sequel to the original 1964 movie was released in late 2018, 54 years after the original, called Mary Poppins Returns. It has sparked even more interest in the original story, just in time for this long-awaited theatrical revival.

So what's the plot?
It's London, and the year is 1910. The youngsters of the Banks family, Jane and Michael, need a nanny, and they want a cheerful one. When the perfect nanny - Mary Poppins herself – turns up, her unconventional ways turn the family upside down. Ultimately she ends up helping the whole family, not just the kids, and there's a wonderfully warm happy ending. The score includes the all-time classics songs Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, A Spoonful of Sugar, Let's Go Fly a Kite, Feed The Birds and more.

The Producer for Disney is Thomas Schumacher, joined by Cameron Mackintosh. Richard Eyre directs and Matthew Bourne co-directs. The lighting comes from Howard Harrison, Design from Bob Crowley, and the costumes are by Bob Crowley.

Who is this show for?
This delightful classic musical is suitable for the whole family.

An amazing show for all the family!

One of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. The cast are just brilliant, so energetic, creative and funny. Everything was so well planned, we loved the effects such as the floating cup and walking up the wall/on the ceiling. Finally, the songs, they literally got you singing along with them. Really was amazing from start to finish.

Really great!

Went to see this performance at the Prince Edward theatre and thoroughly enjoyed it. Me and my boyfriend have not been to the theatre together as of yet so it really opened our eyes on how great it can be coming together as a couple. This was a must see and a great show to watch. That being said I didn’t think the audience was as enthusiastic as they should have been and a woman in front kept turning around to tell us to stop when we were whispering about how great the act was.

The first time we have taken our family to a London show and you didn’t disappoint. Amazing, my little man was just in OR. Everything was entertaining and very enjoyable. The only thing that was difficult was the fact the road was closed for al fresco dining. Not great if you have hidden disabilities and a crowd full of people you don’t know. Far too hectic and disorganised.

This is a perfect show for kids and this for families. It’s not a remake of the film set on a stage but it does include all of the classic Mary Poppins movie moments. Some of the clever tricks engaged to show the Poppins magic truly are amazing and child and adult alike will be charmed by this production. Great and lively action from all involved.

Superb entertainment. Hats off to the entire cast, production team and orchestra. Sadly, though, the first half of our 2.30 pm performance was spoiled by a spoilt young girl in our row, about 7-8 yrs old, who talked and complained throughout. The indulgent parents also talked to her out loud rather than whisper, which made it even worse. Everyone kept their temper but thank goodness they left at the interval. Also, some young people in front of us were on their phones checking messages periodically, which was annoying. Typical of the selfishness and incivility you find everywhere nowadays.
