This is such a lovely, light hearted, feel good show. I paid £46.40 for a Grand Circle ticket D16. It surprisingly didn't feel as far as I expected and luckily my seat was behind a gap of the two seats in front so I had a good view. Really enjoyed the music from the band/orchestra and the actresses for the... More

The show was fantastic. There was 15 of us and we all enjoyed the evening show. Pity there isn't more toilets for the ladies as there was always a long wait.

We attended Mamma Mia on Saturday 11th Feb and overall we enjoyed the performance. However, the leading ladies (Sanne playing Sophie and Linzi playing Donna) well how can I put it politely, were not very good. Half of the time the audience found themselves laughing at Linzi's singing and the other half was spent dreading the vocals of Sanne. I... More

I have seen Mamma Mia before in Australia, but this time it was ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!! It's such a fun show for all ages with upbeat music and an easy to follow storyline. The sets are very clever and the actors/actresses are magnificent, such a beautiful show. Definitely worth going for all ages young and old.

This show is fabulous - very funny, familiar songs and great fun. Don't go expecting a serious west end performance - it is well done but intended to be funny and a humorous night out! They have everyone up dancing at the end :)

Went to see the show during a college trip, and we were not disappointed. The whole cast gave brilliant performances, and there was even an opportunity at the end of the show for the audience to sing and dance along. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a night out in London.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
