Great writing, Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if You are a big Disney fan, or if you like fantastical musicals that still have a relatable emotional core. Also, if you like 'big' musicals.

Don't see it if You prefer shows that are more small and intimate, or if you are not a big fan of the original movie/books.

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

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

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

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

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 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.

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

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.
