“Wonderful show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had a fantastic time, sang along to most of the songs. Small, intimate theatre, collect your pre-paid tickets from the appropriate window and bypass the queue. Licensed venue so you can enjoy a pre show drink. Professional cast, started on time. I can thoroughly recommend this event

“Don't expect ABBA copycats”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

I enjoyed the show but it wasn't what I expected. I expected an ABBA tribute type show but its not at all. It's basically a play with ABBA words as a backdrop. Except for a few songs such as Dancing Queen, the words are the same but its more of a musac version, something that youd hear in an elevator. The three older characters have been played by the same actresses for years so they hit the right stride.

Overall a decent night as long as your expectations are correct.

“Lots of fun. A perfect sing along!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I went to see Mamma Mia on Broadway last week. Lovely voices, lovely music that never grows old. Smart set decoration and bright costumes are sure to make for a very bright evening!
