The success of Disney's Mary Poppins in Hamburg once again proved that the city ranks among the world’s prime musical locations. Based on a novel by P.L. Travers as well as the Academy Award-winning Disney movie (1964), Disney’s Mary Poppins found its way into theatres across the globe. The story of an offbeat yet kind-hearted nanny has fascinated audiences in several countries. On Broadway, the 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' show ran for six straight years. After premiering in London in 2004, the musical has won more than 30 international awards.
Mary Poppins played at Hamburg's Theater an der Elbe from 2018 until August 2019.
