I wasn't sure what to expect, but really enjoyed the show. What I enjoyed most, was that the actors seem to really be having fun on stage. The music was good, the singing terrific, and overall, a very good show

I did not like this play. The scenery was poor and while the acting, singing and dancing were good the theater was poorly designed and i missed half the play because it was behind the only piece of scenery a curved wall and that blocked much of my view.

It was quite a nice musical. The actors/actress performance was great and the colors were very enlightening just made me feel happy and excited, the songs were spectacular and made the crowd get up and dance. I had a great time. I would see it again <3

I have seen this show in several locations around the world and booked it in Broadway to hopefully see how it should be done! Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations - the night I went the voices of the main cast were too inconsistent for my liking. I wonder if there were issues with the microphones?? I... More

The venue was a little crowded, we were packed very tight. The show itself was engaging, music and singing was terrific . We really enjoyed ourselves. The encore and singing/dancing at the end was a great surprise and a wonderful end to an evening out

I grew up listening to the sounds of Abba and never knew they acclimated Mama Mia until the movie came out several years ago. The broadway performance was wonderful. Brilliant acting and lungs on the talent. The music was flawless. You'll be singing in your seats and falling in love with the characters. Highly recommended.

I have seen Wicked in Chicago and in Indianapolis. It is a wonderful musical. I did not think anything could compare to my love of that musical. I have to say that Mama Mia was just so amazing. The actors could sing and I had goose bumps the whole musical. I laughed and did not want it to end. I... More

Although the play has been around for a lot of years, this was the first time we'd seen it. The acting job and the choreography are fantastic as is, of course, the songs. We saw the show during the 4th of July weekend. We had two absolutely brilliant understudies in main roles, either of which could carry the whole play... More
