Mary Poppins is closing up its big umbrella on Broadway.

The New York Post is reporting that a source at the Disney Corporation says the six-year-old musical will go dark in March. It will be replaced by a musical adaptation of the Disney movie Aladdin.

There’s no confirmation from Disney on the report.

The production based on the hit book and movie features a large cast that includes Toronto actor/singer Janet MacEwan. It’s one of five hit musicals in the Disney trunk, including The Lion King and Newsies.

Mary Poppins routinely grosses more than a million dollars a week despite the presence of touring versions. It has been one of the top ten grossing shows for the past six years and top five for attendance.
