Mary Poppins is a musical with music and lyrics by the Sherman Brothers, with additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, and a script by Julian Fellowes. The musical is based on the similarly titled Mary Poppins children's books by P. L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film, and is a fusion of various elements from the two.
“Ecstasy, or a moment of pure transcendence, is the ultimate justification of the musical… Step In Time, which not only raises the roof but takes place on it and is a hymn to the dionysiac joy of dance.”
- The Guardian, Michael Billington
MARY POPPINS was nominated for the Lawrence Olivier Award: Best New Musical
