Sing your heart out to Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia the film, directed by Phyllida Lloyd with choreography by Anthony Van Laast, was the highest grossing musical film in the world… ever. And the musical version is a smash hit to end all smash hits. Mamma Mia the musical has already been seen and loved by more than forty five million people across six continents since it first opened in 1999. With music and lyrics by Abba’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, joined by songwriter Stig Andersen, this Olivier Award winning adaptation of British playwright Catherine Johnson’s book is an on-going runaway success.

Mamma Mia! - The story

Mamma Mia is a touching tale about a wedding on a sunny Greek island. Sophie, the bride, has nobody to walk her down the aisle and her mission to find her father uncovers three very different potential candidates from her mother Donna’s fascinating past. All three ex-lovers return to the island, where they first met Sophie’s mother two decades earlier, and Donna is transported back to re-experience the memories of her rebellious, carefree youth. The story of the wedding unfolds, infectiously funny and light hearted, told through twenty two of Abba’s greatest hits.

Mamma Mia the musical continues to deliver love, laughter and friendship to delighted audiences from all over the world. Taking its rightful place as one of the West End’s greatest triumphs, it’s popular with people of every age and taste.

Mamma Mia song list

Everyone loves Abba tunes, and Mamma Mia contains twenty two of their biggest and best-loved chart toppers. I Have A Dream, Honey, Honey and Money, Money, Money take the stage with uplifting songs like Thank You For The Music, Chiquitita, Dancing Queen and, of course, Mamma Mia itself.

You’ll be singing in your seat to Lay All Your Love on Me, Super Trouper and Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, swaying to The Name of the Game, Voulez-Vous and Under Attack. With One of Us, S.O.S and Does Your Mother Know helping to move the story along, and Knowing Me, Knowing You and Our Last Summer bringing laughter and tears in equal measure, it’s one of the best feel-good West End shows to hit the London stage.

Slipping Through My Fingers, The Winner Takes It All, Take a Chance on Me and I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do join Dancing Queen and Waterloo in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza that’ll leave you feeling uplifted, inspired and determined to buy a copy of Abba’s greatest hits as soon as the shops open the next day!

Mama Mia

London Box Office customer

A must show to see when in London

Easiest way to buy the tickets to this show was online, we tried to buy the tickets straight was theatre but they were only offering tickets for the same day shows... to attract even more people to this show , I would have a separate box office inside theatre selling tickets to any day shows like they do in New York.


London Box Office customer

Disappointing

The show lacked exciting and creative dialogue and banter. The characters were flat and played out their roles very simply. There was no extra dimesnion or fun or witty writing. The set was incredibly simple and boring. And the costumes were sad and disappointing,

Amazing entertainment

London Box Office customer

The show is fantastic but the upper balcony view is not good enough.

It was very fun to watch this show, The live show is good but sometimes it was monotone. The flow of the movie is way better than the play. Sometimes It felt me like the director dwelled some stages, but overall it was very fun for me and my wife.

Mama meets ABBA

Great show for any age group except children under 7 /8 For us in our late 50s this was a great trip down memory road. We loved it . The spontaneous ABBA performance at the end was just great - a sing a long for the audience just meant the atmosphere lifted even higher and everyone left the show buzzing. During the encore It looked to me as if the cast were enjoying the show as much as the audience.


London Box Office customer

First time to a theatre was fantastic for 2 young people the old theatre was beautiful . The sound was clear and we had great seats which helped. Get there in plenty of time as there is nothing more annoying when people come in late


London Box Office customer

Fantastic finish to a wonderful few days in London

Wonderful and very enjoyable performance, artist were above being brilliant, they were fantastic brought the whole audience into the show. Invest in getting a wonderful view, we were in row C seats 8 & 9 of the Dress Circle and had a wonderful view of the performance. There were seats available in row A which is at the front but these tickets didn’t show on the website where I booked our tickets. So check other booking agents before committing to buy. You will enjoy because it’s FANTASTIC.

Shockingly powerful

Having seen the movie many times, the expectations were not high... after all- how can you beat Meryl Streep? But the show takes you to another reality in an absolutely perfect way - from performers to performances, from voices to dances. Passion and energy flowing


London Box Office customer

Absolutly must see!!!!

London Box Office customer

Awesome music, decor, colors and beautiful actors.

London Box Office customer

Fabulous

Had a wonderful time at mamma Mia, funny in parts, light hearted and the music of course was excellent, the dancers were excellent especially the young men, fit as fiddles, surprising to see some of the female dancers were a little on the chubbier side, just an observation. The lead singer was very good, only little comment was when she sang with the hand held mic she had it too close to her mouth and the odd time sounded a little out of tune. It’s live I know it didn’t take away in any form at all. Fantastic

London Box Office customer

First West End show

Took my son to London for the first time and we both loved the show. The acting and singing was excellent and verdict from teenage son was that the boys sang a lot better than in the film - sorry Piers and Colin! Had a meal before the show at a lovely restaurant nearby but really glad we had booked ahead as lots of people came in who couldn’t get a table. Altogether a great night out.


London Box Office customer

Great experience

The performance was wonderful the best I have seen. It was so well done from the performers , the staff and the venue. I recommend it to everyone .

London Box Office customer

Just a pleasure

Really a great show. Fully recognizable with all those great Abba songs. Outstanding performance. Nice theatre even a good view from the highest balcony.


London Box Office customer

Nostalgia fest

If you like Abba music then you'll find this show entertaining and even clever in how the disparate tunes are woven into a story. the acting is good and most of the singers give a hearty rendition of many well-known and couple of not so well-known tunes. The scenery is simple but warm and appropriate for a Greek island setting. The show was lively with lots of people singing out with the cast so if that irritates you, you have been warned!


London Box Office customer

Above our expectations - absolutely perfect!!!

Superb!!!

Review of Mamma Mia!

11 Sep 2014

Mamma Mia! Musical Sometimes I get a gut feeling about whether I’m going to enjoy a production before I’ve even walked through the door. Normally I mistake this for hunger and grab a chocolate bar that I really don’t need, but this time as I walked through the doors of the Novello Theatre I had an uneasy feeling telling me that I was not going to be impressed by this show. But, Mamma Mia! has been running for 16 years and is still going strong, so I told myself to watch it with an open mind. Now don’t get me wrong, I love ABBA and can often be found belting out Dancing Queen in a karaoke bar or on a dance floor. I figured that I would spend the evening happily singing along to a corny show with a crazy storyline and great performances. I should have listened to my first gut feeling.
