Boring, Long, Disappointing, Slow, Ambitious

See it if you like overly long Disney stage adaptations - this is for you.

Don't see it if Charlie Stemp is off. I love understudies, but this show drags & needs a star to save it. It might’ve been better if he was on at our visit.

Time Out London
February 13th, 2022

Half-baked story aside, ‘Mary Poppins’ serves up everything you could want in a mega-budget family musical: memorable songs, dazzling visuals and a nostalgic ideal of a London that never existed. It’s supercalifragelistically good fun to visit for an hour or three.

For a previous production

Zizi Strallen (who played the role on tour in 2015) might have stepped from a picture-book. She is, to cite one of the better songs of the blandish cache by Stiles and Drewe (augmenting the bankable Sherman Brothers classics), “practically perfect in every way”.

This feel-good extravaganza defies both logic and pessimism. Maybe that’s what we need right now.

For a previous production

As an alternative to panto, the production makes a perfectly acceptable family outing. As a musical, it doesn’t quite take flight.

For a previous production

Travers scholars may still miss the darkness of the books, but for the rest of us the show is an unassailable treat and Eyre’s production has acquired the heart to go with its art.

The Arts Desk

For a previous production

All contribute to a lavish if somewhat muddled and inescapably old-fashioned revival – sure to succeed commercially via the nostalgic power of Poppins, but, unlike its titular nanny, never quite taking flight.
