Mamma Mia! description

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!

Not to be missed!

This show was amazing! It captured the Mamma Mia story well on stage with very minimal staging. The production was peppered with some very funny scenes along with some very poignant and tear jerking ones. The music and singing was excellent with an outstanding performance from the actor who played Donna. If you are feeling a bit down and low, a visit to this musical will definitely help to lift your spirits. A fantastic night that saw everyone on their feet and singing and dancing in the end.

Extremely disappointed :(

I’m really sad to be leaving this review :(, I was so excited to see Mamma Mia. The singing was really not up to scratch, we had the understudy for Sophie, I don’t know if it was an off night and I feel awful to say it but the singing really was not good :(. There wasn’t a single moment in any song where I was blown away which is unusual for the west end. I went with two other people and they said the same, I’ve never seen such a disengaged audience. My mum has seen this before and loved it so I hope that this was a one off but I wouldn’t personally recommend this show :(
