Lovable, caring, charismatic and delightful are a few words to describe the incomparable Mary Poppins. She is everything your exhausted parents could never be and so much more. Why, Mom and Dad never thought to make up clever songs to trick you into cleaning your room, and they certainly don't have any magical expanding bags full of amazing stuff in their arsenal. (Mom always did have gum, though. We'll give her that.) The Peabody Opera House (1400 Market Street; 314-499-7600) hosts an enchanting night with everyone's favorite nanny May 8 through 13; showtimes vary. Tickets are $22 to $127.
