Breathtaking, amazing, awe-inspiring, silly, animated, nostalgic.... Laura Michelle Kelly was the loveliest of lovely Mary Poppins. The whole cast rocked.... And I must say that recreating such a legendary childhood musical can be risky, but WOW, we were blown away. Would see it again and again. Three cheers!

The magic of Disney. Pure delight. My daughters got me tickets for high balcony seats as a Christmas present. At first I feared I wouldn't enjoy the show from this vantage point, I thought I would resent this Mary, as I have loved Julie Andrews since childhood. Well my new Mary won me over in 3 seconds and even from these seats my night was pure enjoyment. The sets are fantastic...every girl who has ever pined for the perfect doll house will want to have this for their own. Hey, not a bad idea for a merchandising piece...a 17 Cherry Tree Lane Doll House.. Is there one?? The special effects recreate the magic from the movie..The dancing and voices are perfect....I have never before left a theater wanting to buy tickets to see it again....this is a spectacle in the true Broadway sense...afterwards we found a quaint dining spot at Rachel's..reasonably priced, warm friendly staff, and GOOD FOOD!! try the Chocolate chocolate chocolate cake..a Practically perfect day. Go Enjoy!!!!!

I saw show in London. My whole family are huge movie Mary fans, so I was expecting to be disappointed. On the contrary! I'm not a theatre expert or anybody qualified to review a show professionally - I'm just a frequent patron and I know what I like and don't like! That said, It was fantastic! Magical! It was...supercalifantastmagical! New take on songs , esp. Supercali, was superb. Set and effects were mind-boggling. I literally sat there with my jaw dropping open - as the thrills continued throughout show! I kept thinking - can it get any better? And it did! Songs are extremely catchy - you'll leave the theatre humming and singing whether you want to or not. Great show for kids, but do them a favor, and prepare them by watching the movie or reading the story first. The will enjoy it so much more! Only the song 'Temper' seemed un-Poppins like and too modern, a bit scary for small ones. (Beware - Toys turn vengeful on children, scary music!

The musical is amazing. We were in the very back row of the balcony (row M) but still felt engaged with actors. Our view was excellent. Special effects are amazing. Nursery scene with Temper, Temper is inappropriate for your children. We missed Sister Suffragette and Admial Boom's cannon but enjoyed the additions of the kitchen scene when Jane and Michael cause an explosion and the nursery scenes with their mother. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

Mary Poppins is my favorite childhood character. I recently saw this show with my 6 year old son.I have her book and a video. I used to work in the kindergarden, fly on stairs in our home so everybody calls me a real life Mary Poppins.She is magical, beutifull, confident and supercalifragilisticexpialidocous! I always remembered it is not what you do but how you carry yourself. See you soon.Orevuar!

I saw Mary Poppins for the second time this past Sunday with my 7 year old daughter. We went in the Spring and took our friends back. We LOVE LOVE LOVE it, and we so excited to take our friends. I purchased the tickets both times with Ticketmaster the first time we were in OR row L we paid $120.00 @ and worth every penny. When I bought the tickets for this past weekend I also paid $120.00 per ticket and I assumed they would be unobstucted views. Shame on The Amsterdam or Ticketmaster for selling tickets in the OR under the balcony for the same price as the seat without the balcony OBSTRUCTION. I guess it really made me mad because I saw before and what a difference! You miss so much it is still a great show but please give us a break and be fair charge less for those seats at least then we won't feel so cheated, why would anyone think seeing the shadow of Bert is the same. I know it is difficult to give every seat the same view but please those seats should not be $120.00.
