A terrific show....and one show in which the 2nd act is even better than the 1st. Loved it.

LOVED IT!!!! My seats were great and the show was a visual treat! I went to the 8pm show and didn't get out until almost 11pm so it was late if you had kids with you. Wonderful talent and beautiful set design. AWESOME! I attached a pic of my seat...continued

If you are expecting to see the Mary Poppins we have come to love and adore, you will NOT find it in this musical adaptation. The new material is weak and out of place. The set is at odds with itself. Sometimes real and then abstract while in a...continued

Each set change blew me away! The singing and dancing was great, even the young children didn't miss a beat.
Our seats were in the nose bleed section but it didn't hinder the effect of this play. Glad I went.

well...where to begin. I saw this show in London years ago...and didn't like it then. So I thought I'd give it a second shot. Again, didn't like it, even with the scaled down touring sets (the sets in London were amazing). So to begin with "if it...continued

The staging was amazing, as were the singing and dancing. Mary Poppins even flies out over the audience!
I was afraid the play would be saccharine, but after hearing a few performers sing some of the songs at a Weho bar, I decided to go for it. ...continued

I went expecting a fantastic production and it was just okay. I understand that computers are the thing to use now but the CGI sets were not as thrilling as having a real painted backdrop or real flats. The way the house opened was very nice and...continued

Loved the show. Was wonderful for children and adults. Better if you can take the children to a matinee rather than the night show. Runs a little late for kids after a full day of school and/or playing hard.

In my opinion, you just can't duplicate Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. The cast did a good job, but.... I don't care to see the storyline change--very different from the movie version. Characters and songs were added that didn't make sense...continued

We had 2 (last row mid section)rear Orchestra seats that were worth the ticket value paid. I went with my 8 year old son that came out of the production singing and dancing! It was a very special mommy son night that I highly recommend!

First off, the set and special effects were amazing. The actors who played Bert and Mary Poppins were also quite fantastic.

Now on to the not so good...

As others have stated, there are quite a few new songs added in. I thought this made the...continued

Goldstar provided great seats as usual. We were last row center on the Mezzanine with great sightlines and great sound despite being under the overhang. The pitch of the seating is steeper than orchestra, so in fact, the view is better, and sound...continued

We had rear orchestra seats and they were perfect. The musical is very different from the movie, so there is no need to fear being bored. The actors who originated Mary Poppins and Bert on Broadway are in this production as well. They are both...continued

This is a good show. I liked this show. Didn't love it. If you are looking for an exact recreation of the movie be prepared to be slightly disappointed as some of the favorite songs and plot lines are missing or misplaced throughout the show. The...continued
