My family and I sat on the balcony and we quite enjoyed the show. The Novello theater was not very big but nice. The story line, costume and songs were great. Sound quality too was excellent. It was quite entertaining. I sang and danced all the way. I was a bit afraid to look down from the balcony though and... More

Mamma Mia was a fantastic show, just a pity the seat I was sitting on tipped forward and made sitting a little uncomfortable. I was in seat L24, although I could see the stage, having to keep pushing myself back onto the seat was a pain.

I don't know if it was the cast, but after seeing the movie with Meryl Streep , I did not appreciate this production so much. First of all, I'd expect more extravaganza, more glamour but the show was nice but not what I expected. Surely I won't be motivated to see it again and again as it happened with Les... More

Went to see ABBA as a belated birthday present. Absolutely loved the show - highly entertaining throughout. Well acted whilst being very humorous in places. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to all!

We were in the balcony which was very high and view was slightly obstructed - we had to lean forward at times to see the very front of the stage.(tickets were only £20each though so expected) Set was basic but good. Story was similar to movie but sufficiently different to the movie. I'm not a huge ABBA fan - but... More

A great sing a long as you would expect, acting was great, some of the singing was a bit off but it didn't matter because its ABBA songs and we all howl along to them of a Friday night at karaoke anyway! The staging is simple but effective and is a good laugh. All I will say is that if... More

This was an outing for my parents who like Abba. I think we were all expecting something flashy and ended up just watching people sing (not terrifically) and dance (more like moving around awkwardly at times). In the end we did get what we thought we would get...over the top costumes and some great dance. In all, it was entertaining... More

I love ABBA and I enjoyed the film so thought this would be a great show to finish off a theatre break in London. I was so disappointed, it was just not upto the standard I'd expect for the west end. Don't get me wrong the cast were ok but it just seemed a bit tired. This was probably down... More
