The Disney musical Mary Poppins will become the 24th longest-running show in Broadway history when it plays its 2379th performance on Friday, August 3 at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

The show passes the runs of the 1977 original Broadway production of Annie and the 1998 Broadway revival of Cabaret.

Mary Poppins has a book by Julian Fellows and uses the original film score by Robert and Richard Sherman, augmented by new songs written by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The Broadway cast currently stars Steffanie Leigh in the title role and Gavin Lee as Bert.
