Mary Poppins derives its roots from the famous title character of the series of the same name. This children book series was conceived and written by P. L. Travers and got extremely popular in the 40s. The popularity and common appeal of the character drew attention of the filmmakers and in 1964 Walt Disney came up with a musical film based on the events described in the books. The film featured the sensational actress, Julie Andrews in the title role and proved to be a blockbuster on the box office.

Besides earning massive commercial acclaim, the movie also won a couple of Oscars. Lasting tracks from the musical entertained the audiences for decades and eventually in 2004, the plans to bring the historic character to the stage were finalized. With little changes in the plot, the story of the musical was developed for the stage and it was ready to be performed.

The book for the musical was written by Julian Fellowes who combined the events from the 1964 film and book series in an ingenious storyline. With music and lyrics by Robert B. and Richard M. Sherman, Mary Poppins musical made its West End debut at the Bristol Hippodrome in September 2004. To justify the magical appeal of the story, different illusions and onstage tricks were used.

Due to its well-planned theatrics and powerful presentation, the musical was called “A roof-raising, toe-tapping, high-flying extravaganza!” by the New York Daily Times.

The West End production of the show also won two Laurence Olivier Awards. In 2006, Mary Poppins debuted on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Maintaining the widespread hype and buzz, the musical received seven Tony Award nominations and won one for the ‘Best Scenic Design’. The popularity of the musical spawned many regional, national and international productions and it also went on to tour US, Australia and different parts of Europe.
