NEW YORK, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Producers Cameron Mackintosh and Thomas Schumacher say their musical "Mary Poppins" has recouped its entire Broadway investment in a year.

The production celebrated its one-year anniversary at the New Amsterdam Theatre on West 42nd Street Nov. 16.

"Mary Poppins" also will begin a North American tour at Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre March 25, 2009.

"We are overwhelmed by the outstanding success of 'Mary Poppins' in New York," Schumacher said in a statement. "The audience response to this timeless tale has been tremendous and we are honored to have the opportunity to now take the show into its next life on the road and around the globe."

"Mary Poppins" is slated to make its Australian debut at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney in October 2009 and the first licensed productions will debut internationally beginning in October 2008 in Stockholm, followed by Copenhagen, Helsinki and Budapest. Plans are also under way to present the show in Holland, China, South Africa and South America, representatives for the musical said.
