“Mama Mia! Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I was invited along to this as part of a group. Although I have previously enjoyed theatre, I wasn't particularly looking forward to this, not being a massive Abba fan or into musicals.
I was actually really surprised and totally enjoyed the show. I was hooked after 10 minutes.
The theatre was lovely inside, original theatre stye set up.
Bar prices expensive, but only to be expected.
Would definitely return

“If you enjoy Abba's music, you will enjoy this show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I will admit that as plots go, it is not Shakespeare. However, if you enjoy the music, this show will give you a fun and memorable experience. The cast had the entire theatre on our feet singing and cheering.

The Novello Theatre is a great venue - not too large, not too small. The acoustics are great and the ingress/egress and food amenities are well located and organized. The seats are comfortable, if lacking a bit in legroom.

I would recommend both this performance and this theatre as a venue.

“Fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We really enjoyed the show - great production, dont know why we waited so long to see it! The only negative comment I would have would be against the theatre staff. Taking into account this was Mamma Mia & people were naturally wanting to sing along, the staff would approach anyone singing & ask them to be quiet!
