“So much fun!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Excellent musical for those who want to have fun! Beautiful ABBA songs with great interpretations! The leading actress who plays Donna is great as wells as those who play her friends and daughter. Actually all of them were very good. I saw the movie and the musical is also great. If you compare Pierce Brosnan (what a weak voice!) and the actor in the musical, I'd say 0 x10. So go see the musical!!

“Doesn't match the expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

After watching another showl "Rock of ages" (amazing!) we were so impressed by Broadway musicals that decided to watch the "classic" one - Mamma Mia, but were very-very disappointed by it. We expecting to see some kind of show with lots of dancing, singing in groups, costumes, fun, etc, but it was rather boring. Most of the time it was just 1 person singing and it was not intertaining at all. Only the last 15 minutes of the show were impressive. I would say this musical is more for families with small children.

“The Best Show I have been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

The show was fantastic, the singing was fantastic loved every minute of it. I got my sister and I a drink a vodka & diet coke & a scotch and diet coke asked for it in a large glass as we don't like it too strong and was charged $50 so beware a diet coke in the same glass is $10 so they are charging $15 per spirit a bit expensive.

“Pure energy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

This was a Valentine's day gift for my husband. He is a huge Abba fan. I was sure that he would enjoy it. I did not know the story line and only know a few songs, I didn't think that I would enjoy the show so much. The actors were fantastic, it had a great story line and the music was awesome! At the end of the show the actors performed a few more songs as the audience danced. We loved Mamma Mia! It was amazing!

“I had a ball! Such a great show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

If you love ABBA - this is definitely for you! If you like the Mamma Mia movie - you will like this too :) It was so much fun. Everyone ended up getting up at the end and were dancing haha it was really cute. Definitely a great show! :) more of a girly show - or for guys that loves ABBA too :)

Also across the road from the theatre there is this restaurant - we told them we only had 25 minutes to get in and out and they were great! I would suggest if you wanted to go somewhere close for dinner beforehand - that place was great. I can't remember the name but is directly right across with drawn pictures of all the celebrities that have eaten there.
