“Really entertaining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

We had great seats, right in the middle of the stalls. The actors are great singers, and the band is fantastic. I guess the staging is somewhat simple (nothing like for instance Oliver! or Lion King). And its not the best of stories.

HOWEVER, the music is good. I mean REALLY good.

Would definitely recommend visiting, and would also recommend paying extra for good seats. A great night of entertainment.

“Wonderful Cast and Singing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

This is my first time watching this musical as I haven't seen the movie starring Pierce Brosnan. I wonderful vocal range. The rest of the cast were eminently watchable and had wonderful voices as well. I believe everybody knows almost all the ABBA songs that were used in this musical and we were all dancing at our seats by the time the musical ended.

I bought our tickets online and was lucky to get seats in the middle of the stalls which gave us fantastic views of the stage and cast. Sound rendition was also fantastic from our seats.

“Best musical I've seen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

This is hands down one of the best shows I've ever seen!
It's funny, engaging and an absolute joy to watch!
It will have you singing, dancing in your seat and laughing out loud.
Well worth a visit, you will not regret it.

“Avoid cheap seats in Grand Circle row AA”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Mainly good cast, and perhaps our seat location didn't help regarding sound distortion, making some of them seem off key at times. Pay more and get decent 'central' seats. In row AA you have to lean over all the time to see the stage, and still miss much of the action as it takes place to the left of the stage. Maybe this review is unfair on the cast - but the seats definitely make a difference in the Novello Theatre.
