Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins is one of American cinema’s most beloved and enduring characters, “practically perfect in every way,” because she finds or creates every bit of magic she can in the monotony of daily life, and she reminds us that “everything is possible, even the impossible.” 17 Cherry Tree Lane – The Music of Mary Poppins captures the whimsy, magic, and mystery of Mary Poppins herself, and features adapted music from both the 1964 classic film Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins, and the 2018 sequel Mary Poppins Returns.
