TUESDAY JULY 17TH TO SUNDAY JULY 22nd AT THE QUEEN ELIZABETH THEATRE
BROADWAY ACROSS CANADA PRESENTS MARY POPPINS
Mary Poppins is bringing its own brand of Broadway magic to theaters across the country, which has Variety raving, “This is the rare touring production that over-delivers on every level!”
Featuring the irresistible story and unforgettable songs from one of the most popular Disney films of all time, plus brand-new breathtaking dance numbers and spectacular stage-craft, Mary Poppins is everything you could ever want in a hit Broadway show! So get swept up in the fun of this high-flying musical the New York Post gives 4 out of 4 stars and calls “a perfect piece of musical theater.”
Mary Poppins is the story of the Banks family who live in a big house in London on Cherry Lane. Things are not going well for the family, the children, Jane and Michael, are out of control and are in need of a new nanny. Jane and Michael have their own ideas about what sort of caretaker they should have, while their parents—and in particular Mr. Banks—are insistent on someone strict for the job. When a mysterious young woman named Mary Poppins appears at their doorstep, the family finds that she’s the answer to their prayers, but in the most peculiar way. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “anything can happen if you let it.”
WHAT IS MARY POPPINS LIKE?
If you like the movie, you’ll probably love the show. It features all the classic songs (“A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” to name a few) plus some catchy new tunes. With elaborate sets, eye-popping light displays and show-stopping numbers, this Disney-rific production will transport you to the Banks’ household on Cherry Lane as well as the rooftops of London.
IS MARY POPPINS GOOD FOR KIDS?
Absolutely. There’s plenty of spectacle (she flies!), plenty of laughs and songs the whole family will likely keep singing after the show ends. One moment involving a toy box coming to life may give young ones a fright (and some have noted that it is a tad on the long side for wee ones), but all in all, this is one of Broadway’s surest bets for kids.
