About Mary Poppins

It's a jolly holiday with Mary Poppins in town! Mary Poppins is at the Prince Edward Theatre. See Mary Poppins before the musical closes in January 2023.

Join Mary Poppins as she flies on her umbrella all the way to Cherry Tree Lane. When she knocks on the Banks' door, Jane and Michael Banks can't believe their luck. As the magical nanny leads them on a whole host of unbelievable adventures, they're joined by jack-of-all-trades Bert.

A sequel to the original Mary Poppins film was released in December 2018. Mary Poppins Returns sees Poppins return to the Banks household following a family tragedy. With a 54 year gap between the original film and this sequel, it is the longest gap between live-action film sequels in history.

Who wrote Mary Poppins?

The Mary Poppins musical is based on the much-loved children's books by P. L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film of the same name. Julian Fellowes' book blends the original stories with the acclaimed film to create a new and iconic stage adventure. Mary Poppins features music and lyrics by the Sherman Brothers, with additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

The original production was directed by Richard Eyre along with co-direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear. The production had an out of town tryout in Bristol before opening in the West End in December 2004 at the Prince Edward Theatre, making it the only Disney musical to premiere in the UK.

Entertaining, Quirky, Great staging

See it if you're a fan of the Sherman Brothers songs and the basic plot of the film it's based on. Great sets and amazing choreographies.

Don’t see it if you expect an accurate adaptation of the film. The musical is supposed to be closer to the books, although it uses the Disney songs
