The characters were still mostly the same, Mary, Bert, Jane and Michael were all there, and they had kept a couple of the most famous songs, which I really enjoyed, but they story line was based around Mary ... more

I went to see this on my Hen night in 2008, at the Birmingham Hippodrome and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have always been a massive fan of Mary Poppins since childhood, so when I saw that this was on, it was my first choice to go and see. Everyone knows the basics of Mary Poppins, she is a nanny with a few extra powers (pulling giant things out of handbags, controlling toys by clicking her fingers), so I expected the musical to just be a re-enacted version of Mary Poppins, but it wasn't. They had changed quite a lot of the story line. The characters were still mostly the same, Mary, Bert, Jane and Michael were all there, and they had ... Read the complete review

I didn't actually see this in the UK, I saw it on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre in NYC but I believe it is exactly the same show and actors change frequently anyway. I absolutely love the film and have been to see The Lion King on stage so thought this would be worth going to see. Both are produced by Disney and I think that quality shows through. The action still centres around Mary Poppins, Bert and the Banks family and most of the storyline and songs -with a few add-ins, such as a long version of Super... - are exactly the same as in the film, which I won't go into as I'm sure everyone has seen the film! There are a few differences but ... Read the complete review

***NOTE*** I tried to suggest a new category for this and after some lengthy email conversations, my review has ended up in this category. Feel free to pass on advice on whether it needs to be moved. This is also a long review :O) I was in New York for my sister's 40th and we decided to take in a day in New York City and catch a musical. My brother-in-law had no idea what to go for, we had children to cater for as well so we decided to check out Mary Poppins on Broadway. I don't know anyone who doesn't know the lovely story of Mary Poppins. Mary Poppins is the story of the mystical and stern English nanny, blown to Cherry Tree Lane and ... Read the complete review

I went to see Mary Poppins in the Kings Theatre in Edinburgh. The tickets were given to me as a gift, so I didn't pay for them, but had been planning on seeing the show (and travelling 2 hours each way to see it!) anyway, so was really hoping for a good night out. I wasn't disappointed!! First of all, I have to admit, I am a HUGE Disney fan, and an even bigger fan of the musicals. I think to pay the amount of money they cahrge for tickets to this, you'd have to be. That, or have small children, although the little boy in front of us actually fell asleep during the 2nd half! I'm not going to write out the full plotline of the show, anyone ... Read the complete review
