Mary Poppins

Overview

A glittering new revival of Disney musical Mary Poppins floats into the West End’s Prince Edward Theatre on a magical umbrella in 2019. First premiering at the same theatre in 2004, before later transferring to Broadway, the multi-Olivier Award-nominated show originally ran for an impressive three years.

Set in Edwardian London on Cherry Tree Lane, Mary Poppins sees chimney-sweep Bert introduce the Banks family, who live at number 17. Winifred and George are having a tough time with their naughty children, Jane and Michael, and their nanny has quit in light of the kids’ appalling behaviour. But the mysterious Mary Poppins soon arrives to set everything right.

With a book by Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes, the Sherman Brothers’ musical is a collaboration between Cameron Mackintosh and Disney, and features show-stoppers such as “Practically Perfect”, “A Spoonful of Sugar”, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” and “Chim Chim Cher-ee”, amongst many more. The musical also includes additional material by Stiles and Drewe.

Zizi Strallen stars as Mary Poppins, reprising the role after most recently playing it in the 2015 national tour. Her recent credits include Strictly Ballroom the Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre and Follies at the National Theatre. Charlie Stemp plays Bert, following his recent successes in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway and Half a Sixpence and Dick Whittington in the West End.

Richard Eyre directs Mary Poppins, which features co-direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne, choreography by Stephen Mear, set and costume design by Bob Crowley, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Paul Gatehouse, with orchestrations by William David Brohn.

Based on PL Travers original children’s book and Disney’s beloved 1964 film starring Julie Walters and Dick Van Dyke, Mary Poppins is a magical, musical experience that tells the story of the Banks family and the marvellous woman Mary Poppins. An unmissable theatrical event, the production opens at the Prince Edward Theatre in autumn 2019. Tickets go on sale in January 2019.

Recommended for

This is a great show for families, though adults will also appreciate the family disfunction and reminder to look after each other and be kind. Charlie Stemp fans will love seeing him back on the London stage, and those who adored Zizi Strallen in the role now have the chance to see her again!

Age Recommendations: Recommended 7+. No under 3's.
