“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Awesome show, highly entertaining, vibrant acting, colourful, great set, great music, many good laughs, and good fun from start to finish. Theatre itself is unique, evidently old but very interesting. Staff ushering patrons were very polite and helpful. Worth seeing, do it!

“Excellent !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

You don't have to be a big Abba fan for this spectacle. The show is truly amazing and I urge you to pay a visit. Any age group will love it !!!!!

“A very enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We attended the 18th July show. The Novello Theatre was literally packed but everything was well organised, the ushers most helpful. The show lasted a little over 2 hours and we enjoyed every single minute.

“Good fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Great music, good acting, fun time. I've been to see it 3 times, with different casts each time, it was excellent on all occasions and never fails to make you laugh.
Fair warning, act 2 starts with a loud bang, I and a lot of other people in the audience got a fright.

“It's Abba - what's not to like?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

You can't really go wrong with a musical so jammed full of catchy Abba numbers.
The story, well let's face it, it's a bit thin, but it's really just an excuse to have an ongoing medley of upbeat Abba and we loved it!
The atmosphere in the theatre was wonderful, and only slightly spoilt by the over eager stewards trying to stop pictures being taken before the show started (don't know why, social media exposure can only help surely?)
Came out buzzing and I think you would need to be pretty stoic not to join in with the party atmosphere.
I wouldn't get seats at the back of the stalls again, as the view was a bit obstructed for me....but I'm only little!
