I didn't think you could go all the way to New York and not sample a broadway show! As we were trying to get tickets last minute Mamma Mia! was all that was available. We just bought the "cheap seats" at $60 each but the seats were great. On the upper level but due to the small(iish) size of the... More

This production was first class and although we found the audience a little reserved at times everyone joined in towards the end. Yes, the set is straight forward as is the theatre, but the performance was excellent and my wife loved getting her photo taken with one of the stars at the end. All the stars were very approachable at... More

We were in NY to celebrate my husband's 50th and of course had to see a Broadway show. My husband is not a fan of theatre especially musicals but I figured since we like Abba he would at least enjoy the music. He loved the show and sang along to every song! Fabulous show,lots of laughs with awesome singing of... More

Smallish theatre, but pleasant. The production was very good and enjoyed by all the family. During the interlude bought two small bottles of water and ended up handing over $10. Suggest you take your own in. Would recommend and suggest a must do.

10 minutes after the show started only 5 minutes late we were evicted from our booked seats. Then the evicter found that we had paid for those exact seats only 8 months before (to be fair she only knew we had those seats) then came 'we will find you seats somewhere'. Lovely! My spouse exploded before I could have and... More

I'm not a musical fan and went to Mamma Mia has my wife wanted to see it. I'm glad I did. It was brilliant. The acting especially by the female leads was excellent. Their performance was out of top draw. The show was entertaining and the music was complemented by the excellent dancing. I regret seeing the show on the... More
