Slow, Fluffy, Disappointing

See it if you like slightly old fashioned shows with a LOT of set and you want value for money.

Don't see it if you have an ounce of cynicism in your body.

Entertaining, Quirky, Great staging

See it if you're a fan of the Sherman Brothers songs and the basic plot of the film it's based on. Great sets and amazing choreographies.

Don't see it if you expect an accurate adaptation of the film. The musical is supposed to be closer to the books, although it uses the Disney songs

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.

London Theatre

For a previous production

But for nearly three hours, at least, you can park some of those worries at the door, and simply bask in the gentle familiarity and delightful uplift of this story and the spit-spot production it has been given...

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”.

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.

For a previous production

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

What's On Stage (UK)
November 13th, 2019
For a previous production

The iconic musical makes a welcome return to the West End...Although it often conjures the movie, the stage show undoubtedly has its own tart tone.

The Times (UK)
November 14th, 2019
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.

The Stage (UK)
November 13th, 2019
For a previous production

But, even at almost three hours, the whole thing feels rushed. The songs are taken at a lick, and the production jolts from one set-piece to another without pause for breath...Watch the film, read the books. Save the magic.
