Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for more than 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical. The supercalafragalisticexpialadocious adventure is a toe-tapping show with familiar and new music, dazzling dance numbers and Poppins-worthy stage magic.
