I just saw someone giving this a horrible review, I am shocked and wondering if it's legit. This is my second time to see this production, this time (Saturday, Oct 18th) I was with my mother and two daughters(16 and 21). We all LOVED this show! If you don't like Abba music, find a different show. The music was outstanding,... More

This well known musical is much better than the film. If you have not been to Broadway, you will hear the vast difference in quality between Broadway singers and American Idol, etc singers.

Just saw the jersey boys a couple days before this. In comparison this show was terrible. It took about five minutes before I wanted to leave. The plot is disastrous. The acting and singing are not good; still better than an amateur performance, but not notch.

Loved this play, had seen it in a different city. This was much better. Every seat was a good seat, great music. After the play the performers came back and sang lots of songs and acted like they enjoyed doing it.

Great show - that was expected. I initially looked on-line while in the UK. Seats offered by various site were poor value for money. On our first day in NY we purchased a 5 day NY City Pass allowing free access to many attractions and discounts at shows, restaurants etc. Well worth the $$. The Mamma Mia tickets were a... More

Perfect! Live performance is great experience for both of the actors and spectators! Great story, wonderful sound and voices! We had amazing seats on 3rd row from the scene, so we could see and hear everything perfectly. Actors play really touches the heart. Thank you!

My my...how could "we" forget ya? Not the first time we've seen the show, but had family visiting from Washington state and this was our first choice for them. Energizing...loads of fun...great cast and a perfect ending to a perfect day in NYC. Have to choose the "family teens" section below, even though everyone in our party was over 21.

Going to see Momma Mia was a last minute decision for us - but we were all glad we went. The play starts a little slow but picks up to the ending. You can tell all the cast has a great time which pulls you in and makes you want to sing along. Glad we went.

I was a little disappointed that this was the show selected for our tour. I would have preferred something else as the movie was so bad. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Firstly, I love Abba and the cast didn't disappoint. There were very few songs left out and they did a great job on... More

This was our third time seeing this wonderful show and it was a little different then the last time. Even so it was GREAT. We took our daughter and granddaughter to New York and they saw it for the first time and they loved it.
