Mackintosh said: “When the new revised production of Mary Poppins opened at the end of 2019, with a tremendous cast headed by Zizi Strallen, Charlie Stemp and Petula Clark, the response was even more ecstatic than the original. We had always planned to run two years until the physical production was required elsewhere. But covid managed to stretch our timetable into 2023. Allowing everyone to enjoy an additional supercalifragilistic last Christmas jolly holiday season.”
