‘Mary Poppins’ sets West End closing date
Everyone’s favourite nanny will fly out of London.
Mary Poppins follows a magical nanny as she looks after Jane and Michael Banks on Cherry Tree Lane. With the help of jack-of-all-trades Bert, the foursome go on a whole host of unbelievable adventures, stepping into paintings and breathing life into the world around them. In a five-star Mary Poppins review on London Theatre, our critic said: “You can park… worries at the door, and simply bask in the gentle familiarity and delightful uplift of this story and the spit-spot production.”
The Mary Poppins company is led by Zizi Strallen as Mary Poppins, Louis Gaunt as Bert, and Petula Clark as the Bird Woman. Mary Poppins won two Olivier Awards in 2020, including Best Theatre Choreographer and Best Set Design. Find out more about Mary Poppins in London.
Mary Poppins features music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, and new songs by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The book is by Julian Fellowes and co-oreated by Cameron Mackintosh. Richard Eyre and Matthew Bourne co-direct, with Bourne choreographing the show.
Mary Poppins is at the Prince Edward Theatre to 8 Jan. 2023.
