Where is Mary Poppins' umbrella when you need it? Owing to Hurricane Irene, performances of the Broadway productions of Mary Poppins and The Lion King will not be presented on Saturday and Sunday Aug. 27-28, Disney Theatrical Productions announced Aug. 26.

All weekend performances of The Lion King at the Minskoff Theatre and Mary Poppins at the New Amsterdam Theatre (Saturday, Aug. 27 and Sunday, Aug. 28) are cancelled due to the expected extreme weather and transit service shutdown related to it.

Producer Disney Theatrical Productions "made the decision in the interest of its patrons' and staff's safety following the announcement of the impending suspension of MTA and Metro North service."
