What are the best seats at the Prince Edward Theatre?

If you're wondering where to sit at the Prince Edward Theatre when it comes time to book West End Mary Poppins tickets, then rest assured we have taken all the guesswork out for you! The venue's best seats are widely considered to be in the Dress Circle, as they accommodate grand-scale productions and offer full-range views. Here, you're guaranteed not to miss any of the action!

But if you're looking to get more bang for your buck, then we highly recommend the last few rows in the Stalls, which are practically perfect in every way. Not only will you get amazing views here, but you will also save loads of money on tickets as these seats are generally heavily discounted. As always, when you book with London Theatre Direct, our highly intuitive interactive seating plan will let you know of seats with obstructed views so that you can make highly informed decisions before making your purchase.

What is the Mary Poppins musical about?

While many differences exist between the Mary Poppins film and West End musical, the basis for the plot remains the same. Set in Edwardian London, the story follows the Banks family who are in desperate search of a new nanny. After the children, Jane and Michael, make a list of traits that their dream nanny should have, the fantastical Mary Poppins appears from thin air to save the day and put the Banks family back in order. The self-proclaimed perfect Miss Poppins lights up the children's world with endless fun, fantasy and, of course, catchy songs.

The stage adaption combines elements of both the original books and 1964 film and notably brings the character of Neleus from the books to life for the first time. New characters such as the Balloon Woman and Nellie Rubina have been specially created for the stage, and there is more emphasis placed on Jane and Michael misbehaving. As far as the music is concerned, the song 'Let's Go Fly a Kite' is no longer sung at the end of the story, but rather near the beginning of Act 2, while everyone's favourite tune, 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,' is sung in a sweet shop instead of at a horse race like in the film.

The number of differences could certainly fill a short book and audiences will simply have to experience the magic of Marry Poppins on stage for themselves!

Tickets to Mary Poppins The Musical expected to sell out fast!

Thousands upon thousands of theatre fans are anxious for the West End revival of Mary Poppins. Tickets to the first few weeks of performances are likely to sell out faster than you can say 'supercallifragilisticexpialidocious' backwards! And that's a piecrust promise!

Avoid disappointment and book your Mary Poppins tickets as soon as they go on sale on Monday, 28 January 2019
