Tony Award nominee Gavin Creel hosts a series of online behind-the-scenes looks at the stage version of the beloved literary and Disney film character Mary Poppins.

The first three videos take a look at the character's journey from the mind of author P.L. Travers, who wrote a series of books about the magical nanny's adventures, to the classic Disney film, to the stage production that opened first in London and is currently enjoying a hit run on Broadway. The third video asks the question, "Who is Mary Poppins?"

In addition to host Creel, who played Bert during the musical's West End run, the videos feature interviews with one of the film's songwriters, Richard M. Sherman; George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who added songs to the stage production; various cast members, including Marys Laura Michelle Kelly, Ashley Brown and Caroline Sheen; and the show's producers, Disney Theatrical president Thomas Schumacher and Cameron Mackintosh.
