Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney Co. film, Cameron Mackintosh's “Mary Poppins” introduces the troubled Banks family in 1910’s England.
Narrated by Bert, a jack of all trades, the musical sets off to the streets of London to meet the Banks family. The Banks children have just driven away the last of a string of nannies with their unruly behavior. George Banks is absent too much from the family with his work at the bank, and his wife Winifred is distracted as she tries to fit into London society unsuccessfully. Mary Poppins flies in, literally, bringing magic and whimsy along with structure and order. She takes Jane and Michael on memorable and magical activities. Mary Poppins' influence does not stop with the children but rather extends to the adults as the Banks family learns the meaning of family and that ‘anything can happen if you let it.’
