Step in time and imagine you’re on a jolly holiday with Mary Poppins in the West End. Get your umbrellas at the ready and fly to Cherry Tree Lane.
The Mary Poppins musical keeps the same heartwarming whimsical feel of the classic film with a few extra musical flourishes. Hear the Sherman Brothers’ Academy Award-winning song “Chim-Chim Cher-ee” and then get your head around the tricksy “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” routine. Mary Poppins is the ultimate feel-good family musical.
Mary Poppins repeats history too, as it returns to the Prince Edward Theatre following its original 2000s run. You can never have too much of a good thing though, and as Mary Poppins would say, it’s a practically perfect show! London Theatre raved about the “spit-spot production that returned at exactly the moment it is most needed.”
The musical 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, flying kites, and feeding the birds. Sadly, Mary Poppins can’t stay forever, but she instils lifelong lessons into the children.
Enjoy a West End musical in the most delightful way.
