The Broadway musical “Mary Poppins” will close on March 3 at the New Amsterdam Theater to make way for extensive renovations of the Disney-owned house before its expected next tenant: A musical adaptation of the company’s 1992 animated film “Aladdin,” according to two Broadway theater executives. The two executives spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss production plans that remain confidential. A Disney spokesman did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment on Monday.

The “Aladdin” musical had its premiere at the 5th Avenue Theater in Seattle in the summer of 2011, and another production of the show ran last summer in St. Louis. The two theater executives said that the New Amsterdam renovations were expected to take several months and that “Aladdin” would probably not begin performances on Broadway until the spring of 2014.
