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!

I saw the show in London. I had read the review calling it a "darker version". I have seen that same phrase repeated in US papers. While it is not as cheery as the Disney movie, it is a great British nanny story. The children are a bit bratty, Mrs. Banks is a real person with feelings and they explain how Mr. Banks got to be a bit distant from the children. The magic is in the show, just keep an open mind and don't expect what you saw in the movie. You will love it.

This broadway show is amazing. Its crative, heartwarming, a show you'll never forget. The actors and actresses were very talented at the arts. You have just got to see it now.

We loved the play! Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane is a fantastic set, alternating between the downstairs, the nursery and the rooftop of the house. We really enjoyed Ashley Brown as Mary and Gavin Lee as Bert, and the Banks children are wonderful. The Mary Poppins in this play has more edge than in the movie, but you still like the character. Most of the songs from the movie are in the play, with some new material. We especially loved the singing and dancing during Jolly Holiday and Step in Time. This is not just a darker remake of the movie; some parts are from the movie, other parts of the story are different and reflect what it is like to balance raising a family and careers today. There are some laughs, but this is about the songs and dancing. We had great seats 4 rows from the stage on the right, and we will see it again with our children. Highly recommend it. We enjoyed this as much as Wicked, Lion King and Phantom of the Opera, and we love the original movie.

The show is amazing, there are hardly words to describe how wonderful it is. My review is more to advise theatre goers about the experience we had at the New Amsterdam Theatre. We went Fri. night 10/20/06. The seating can be precarious and tight, but the problem was that there was an entire row behind us, balcony level, where there were children, (appeared to be under 4 years old, which is prohibited in this show), crawling, banging, screaming and kicking seats in front of them. When several audience members asked the parents to please control them, parent(s) yelled back at everyone and began to sing along loudly with the songs and talk (shout) comments throughout the show. Several people attempted to find ushers for help, but they seemed understaffed. This was my daughter's birthday gift and she was almost in tears. Several people in our row were enraged..almost a fight. The theatre needs to enforce the rules and ensure that people are aware that this is not "Broadway" behavior.

The musical numbers were fantastically entertaining, the cast worked in perfect harmony and the surprise "special effects" were amazing, especially at the end of the show. Mary Poppins definitely deserves to win the Tony for best musical!
