Made famous by the 1964 Disney classic, Mary Poppins is everyone’s dream babysitter. After all, “She glides through the skies like an umbrella-powered stealth bomber, ever ready to dump her cargo of good advice on unsuspecting households,” writes the New York Times. The wonderfully wise English nanny defies expectations and gravity in Northern Stage’s high-flying production — the largest show in the company’s history. Charming songs such as “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” and “Chim Chim Cher-ee” are sprinkled through the family-friendly tale like spoonfuls of sugar, sweetly reminding audiences of the magic all around.

Price: $15-65.
