Really enjoyed the show. BUT it would have so been much better it the sound technician could get a proper balance between the orchestra and the singers in the big songs. Some of us found the orchestra overpowered the voices !! We did go to hear the songs. I did manage to get a message to the technician during the... More

As part of a wedding present we were given tickets to see Mamma Mia. Having started to watch the film, after about 15 minutes my wife had turned it off and so was not overly looking forward to the show. Well what a turn around in someone who absolutely loved the show. The cast were great, the show fun and... More

I had been a fan of the show since first seeing it 17 years ago. Enjoyed it just as much this time. A great, hard working cast and tremendous orchestra made for a great party atmosphere in the narrow rows of the stalls Hope the show runs for many more years.

I went there with my family, when they visited me. Although the seats we had were not the best, the show was incredible and we enjoyed it a lot. At the end felt like been in a party..Actors were very good and they have excellent voices. Definitely a Musical to watch if you are in London. Make sure that you... More

A very good story based on many Abba songs. It plays on a Greek island and has a surprising development. The players are superb: text, songs and dance: everything brilliant and humorous. Prepare by taking the text with you: you can sing along.

This was not my first choice (it was after all my wife's birthday) but goodness me - what a night - time flew by - incredible voices and musicians and all the little bits of stage business that got every laugh out of the material. Well Done and Thankyou (for the music?) - only about the thousandth time someone has... More

It is hard not to like this show based on the many wonderful ABBA tunes. I saw the show some 15 years ago in Melbourne & wanted to take my daughter to see it on our recent trip to London. We both enjoyed the show & I loved singing along (again) to all the songs! The theatre is lovely &... More

Not one for the purist as David said in the previous review but what the heck, I didnt know the plot from the film and enjoyed the music immensely. Do not buy a CD, keep the music live and enjoy the performances of some very talented actors and actresses who sang and danced their hearts out to give nearly everybody... More
