The show is ending in September 2015. Even though we have seen the show in previous cities, we had never seen on Broadway, and wanted to see the final performances. Great dancing and singing. Look for discount tickets in Times Square. Not suitable for young children because of the adult theme

This production was by far the worst thing I have had to sit through in a long while. The pace of the performance was severely laboured and the singing was amateurish. The woman playing Donna kept missing the start of lines on songs to breathe!! I've seem more charismatic shop mannequins. The eight year olds in Matila wipe the floor... More

Can't say enough good things about this show. Many have seen the movie, and it's fine, but the Broadway show is way better. Never saw such enthusiasm in the theater. Even if you've seen the movie more than once, see this.

Worth a watch. Quite simple stage setting, but an enjoyable easy play with a super professional cast like most things american.

This was a Mother's Day gift that kept me smiling. The storyline was fun. Comedy throughout with great singing. Would have been a perfect night but...on entry we were forced to give up our doggie bags that we had hoped to take home. The negative experience took away from enjoying the show especially after seeing others in theatre with their... More

A group of 4 went for an early Mother's Day celebration, and we all enjoyed it very much, lots of fun, great songs and the performers were really good, the actress that plays Donna has an amazing voice . So glad got to go before the show finishes in September!

This was my umpteenth time on Broadway but let's talk about how great the show was. The performers were top notch, the venue was just intimate and classic, I have only wonderful things to say about this event. Great cast, great music, great energy!

Do not miss Mamma Mía in your visit to NYC! Excellent performance! Excellent cast! Marvellous music! There is a CD with the music from the play, that I highly suggest to buy. Everytime that I play the CD at home, my wife and I returns to the Broadhurst Theater where we had such a nice time!

Though may have seen the movie, a theater is entirely a different experience. The live performance is simply awesome. The actresses and actors truly performs at their best. You forget the that this show actually is quite long. Get your tickets from the discount ticket shop near Broadway at least 1/2 days before for a better seat.

This show was "the icing on the cake" for our recent trip to NYC. The cast is terrific! Great voices! The play is held at the intimate Broadhurst Theater just off Times Square. Mama Mia! is only running until September 5 so be sure to take it in soon.

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.
