I always claimed I'm not into musicals. After a friend strongly suggested this musical, I went and just loved it! If you like ABBA songs, you'd enjoy it even more. I recommend getting a seat close to the stage (the difference is not that big). Do consider it's the only musical I've ever went to, so I don't have anything... More

Mamma Mia is as shiny, wiggly and candy-colored as a big ol' bowl of theatrical jello...and with about as much depth and complexity. Once you get past the first scene introducing the dopey premise (best taken with a grain of salt or to continue the analogy, dollop of Reddi-Whip), the music, cleanly simple yet attractive set, rainbow-sparkly costumes and effective...

Yes I did enjoy myself although I wasn`t too much of an ABBA fan when I was younger. The production was very good, the sound super and a great experience in the end.

Thought the show was pretty good. The music was very good, the story was a little corny. I would recommend it, but I would probably not go back to see it. Overall good experience, but food and drink was horribly expensive. This is not a knock on this show as it is an issue with all of Broadway.

First "on-Broadway" show in NYC for me but have seen at least a dozen musicals onstage live. Show was quite professional and fun but it's not about the music or singing. The lead woman is a great singer, she is worth seeing but the other cast members don't really have the pipes for solos. Junior lead female is young and... More

Very uplifting. Great singing and it's hard not to sing along. Loved it that the Theater was not crowded so we moved over a seat and had a little leg room.

I am so glad I was able to go to Mamma Mia during a short trip to the area. I especially enjoyed the singing voice of the actor with the role of Donna. I enjoyed the other actors' performances as well. This is such a fun show. I highly recommend it for a fun evening of pure entertainment.

My fiancé and I both hate musicals, we were given tickets to see Mamma Mia and bit the bullet. Well, it was a pleasant surprise! Great music, the cast is fantastic and if you love ABBA, you are going to love this! Funny, quirky and fun sums this experience up! The only drawback is the Broadhurst Theatre itself.....quite cramped and... More

Loved this show! High energy - tons of dancing - and of course, can't help but love the music! The main characters were fantastic - loved every single one of them!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
