“Please let me give it a 6!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I drove from niagara Falls to be on time for the last show at Winter Garden Theatre and it was definitely worth those 7 hours on the road. It was my first time in a Broadway show and I enjoyed it a lot. The scenography, the music, the actors, everything exceeded my expectations. Judy McLane's performance of The Winner Takes it All was outstanding. We didn't know about the stage dooring after the play and we found it by accident just because we started walking to the bus stop in the wrong direction and we had to way back. There we met some of the actresses who showed very accesible, signing our playbills and taking pictures with us.

“Great show. Must see.”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

We loved the show! The scenography was really amazing! The songs, the artists were great and public vibes made it a fantastic experience. I liked the Broadway show better than the one presented in Miami. We think the Miami show was voiceover, didn't see any mics on the artists, so if this is true, we hope the Broadway version is not. So worth to see, more than one time!

I was expecting a fantastic night and they gave it to me... We went with our nine years old son who said he just going because we bought him the ticket but ended loving the good fun parts of the show..the music incredible and the show better than the movie. We bought thw tickets from this one place called New York 60 and was the best thing we did because they signed us in the vwst seats possible and that was in the front row just behind the maestro of the orchestra that we even got an autograph once it ended. Very good.

“Enjoyable night out for all the family”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Enjoyable performance, engaged the audience. All seemed to be getting into the show. Not the wow factor of The Lion King but I was still pleased that i went to see this.

“Winner takes it all”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

If you like ABBA or like the movie you will love this play. There is not much I can add to it if you already know the story. However, if you don't know it... It is a modern musical with lots of singing and dancing to ABBA's tunes from the 70s and 80s. Some of the numbers are weak, while most are solid, especially if you are familiar with the tunes.

Make sure you stay through the end. The performance will leave you feeling happy and nostalgic.
