Mary Poppins is a co-production by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh and opened at the New Amsterdam Theatre on November 16, 2006. Based on P.L. Travers's cherished stories and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film, the show features the Academy Award-winning music and lyrics of Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. The stage production has been created, in collaboration with Cameron Mackintosh, by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes, who has written the book, and the Olivier Award-winning team of George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who have composed new songs and additional music and lyrics.

Mary Poppins is co-directed by Richard Eyre and Matthew Bourne, choreographed by Bourne and Stephen Mear, and designed by Bob Crowley. In London, the show earned the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Theatre Choreography, the Variety Club Award for Best Musical, the Evening Standard Award for Best Set Design and the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers' Choice Award for Best Designer. The musical premiered on Broadway in November 2006.
