Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's multi award-winning musical returns to its original West End home

“Cameron Mackintosh's brilliant musical has returned to the West End with huge aplomb. The uber-talented cast have gone down a storm with one critic calling Zizi Strallen “practically perfect” as Mary in a production the Guardian called a “stageful of sugar”.”


The magical story of the world’s favourite Nanny arriving on Cherry Tree Lane has been triumphantly and spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs. The stage version of Mary Poppins is brilliantly adapted from the wonderful stories by PL Travers and the beloved Walt Disney film.



In response to the continued uncertainty over when the government is going to completely withdraw social distancing measures and allow the safe return of theatre productions Cameron Mackintosh, his producing partners and Delfont Mackintosh Theatres have had to take the difficult decision of delaying the return of their productions of Les Misérables, Mary Poppins, Hamilton and The Phantom of the Opera until as early as practical in 2021. Consequently they are starting a process of consultation over potential redundancies for all employees on these productions.

Cameron Mackintosh said:
“This decision is heart-breaking for me, as I am sure it is for my employees, as everyone who has worked with me over the last 50 years, on or off the stage, knows how much I care about what I do and how I do it. Despite the government engaging with the desperate pleas from everyone in the theatre industry, so far there has been no tangible practical support beyond offers to go into debt which I don't want to do…”
