At 80, Esmerelda Quipp is still of sound mind, but her body is beginning to "come unglued", as she puts it. Having spent her working life as an actress, age pushing her gradually out of the business, she now faces the fact that her meager government pension is insufficient to support her, even with her minimal needs. Not one to turn face up and call it quits, she sets about to find a fix for all of her problems and, along the way, makes some colorful new friends. The trouble is, her solution just might cause her to end up in jail!

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it." One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.
