Mary Poppins: Anything Can Happen If You Let It is a celebration of that unforgettable magical nanny who was created by P L Travers, immortalised by Julie Andrews in Walt Disney's 1964 Oscar-winning musical fantasy and who recently flew onto the stage in London's West End and New York's Broadway on her very particular umbrella with the parrot-head handle!
In collaboration with New York writer, MICHAEL LASSELL, I tell the story behind the writing of the original book and its sequels, the making of the much-loved film (considered by many to be the crowning achievement of Walt Disney's career), and the long and tangled tale of Mary Poppins' journey into musical theatreland.
Published by Hyperion/Disney Editions at $50, this lavishly illustrated, sumptuously bound, triptych-shaped volume has an accompanying portfolio of set- and costume- designs by Tony Award-winner Bob Crowley and another of glossy, full-colour photographs which take the form of a visual synopsis following the story of the show, scene-by-scene and number-by-number.
