I had very high expectations of this show and the cast/direction didn't disappoint. The lead as Poppins was really terrific. Anyone not familiar with the story will find it quite moving. Orchestra was spot on for every number and the choreography was well thought out...More

I am short (5'2) and found it to be a little cramped but beautiful. We sat in the center of the front row of the mezzanine and the seats were perfect! You could easily see evrything that was happeining on stage.

Watched Mary Poppins here with my girlfriend. I am not a great fan of theatre, but the venue was nice. The play was pretty good, and the stage/set was unbelievable.

You can take photos of the theater before or after the show. Most productions do not allow photos of any kind to be taken during a performance.
