Mary Poppins is back in London, and the critics have been in to review the revived show at the Prince Edward Theatre in London.
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s sumptuous production returns to London for a limited season at the Prince Edward. The magical story of the world’s favourite Nanny is spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs.
Based on the stories by PL Travers and the original Disney film, Mary Poppins has a book by Oscar-winner Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), with a timeless score by Richard M Sherman and Robert B Sherman and new songs and additional music and lyrics by the Olivier award-winning British team of George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
Multi-talented Zizi Strallen takes the star role of Mary Poppins in the show, with song and dance man Charlie Stemp as Bert.
Mary Poppins has a formidable creative team, including direction by Richard Eyre, design by Bob Crowley and choreography by Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear.

Mary Poppins reviews
"It’s been a while, but this nanny goes down a storm"
"Joyous show is practically perfect in every way"
"In a world forced to swallow a very bitter pill over the past 18 months, this Disney classic is just the spoonful of sensational sugar we all need right now."
"Zizi Strallen is absolutely spit-spot as the nanny who flies in to save the Banks children, and in the process rescues their parents, too. With a gleaming voice, ringing vowels and a firm but fair heart, you can't help wishing more men (and a few of the women) in power these days had been raised by her."
"The Most delightful West End show in a long time"
"Richard Eyre's 2004 musical is back at the Prince Edward Theatre, and it makes for an unbeatably splendid evening"
"A spoonful of sugar is just what we need right now"
"The blockbuster revival of the 2004 Mary Poppins musical is a highly polished piece of entertainment, hugely uplifting and cheerful, with an undertow of melancholy and the occasional baggy moment."
"This Disney musical looks and sounds magical – even if it’s a few shades weirder than the much-loved movie"
