Mary Poppins To Return To The West End Later This Month

Image result for mary poppins london logoOne of my favorite movies growing up was Mary Poppins. In fact, I think I must have seen it about forty or fifty times. What can I say? I'm a fan. Funny enough, but I never got around to seeing the show when it was in New York. The truth is, I guess I was worried that the show couldn't possibly live up to the magic of the film.

Cut to a few years after it opened on Broadway, and I saw a regional production of the show while visiting my family in Illinois. Well as it turns out, I didn't need to worry at all. It was fantastic. Was it better than the film? No. But comparing the two would be like comparing apples to oranges. At the end of the day, I loved them both. This new production, which is set to begin previews at it's original home the Prince Edward Theatre on October 23, will officially open on November 13.

Starring in the title role is Zizi Strallen, who performed the role during the 2015-16 Tour, as well as Olivier Award nominee Charlie Stemp (Half A Sixpence) as Bert, and world renowned recording star Petula Clark as the Bird Woman. By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see Mary Poppins, you have come to the right place. We sell it. In fact, we sell tickets to every show in London. Well every show except Hamilton, but you've all seen that one by now right? Get your tickets to see Mary Poppins in London at the Prince Edward Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
