“I’m so practically perfect in every way.”

On November 16, 2006, the Broadway production of the hit stage musical Mary Poppins premiered at the Disney-owned New Amsterdam Theatre. Based on the hit Disney film of the same name and the books by P. L. Travers, the show was a joint production by Disney and Cameron Macintosh, and opened on the London stage on September 15, 2004. The Broadway production featured Ashley Brown as Mary, and Gavin Lee as Bert, reprising his role from the London production. The show would go on to be nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Gavin Lee; it would go on to win the Tony for Best Scenic Design. The musical had its last performance on March 3, 2013, after running for six years and 2,619 performances.
