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!

London Box Office customer

Could be better

The show was ok but not a five star just a run of the mill show you would get in your local town , the props were poor same all the way through the performance just turned around now and again and they were to far forward to the front of the stage nearly all the people upstairs were leaning over trying to see what was going on throughout the show , plus there was very little leg room felt very cramped all evening and I am only 5foot tall


London Box Office customer

Fun

London Box Office customer

Absolutely gorgeous, brilliant, must see!

My dream was to see the show (I saw first the film) and now I want to see the show again! I cried, I laughed, I sang the sings, I enjoyed it very much. Doesn't matter if you are old or a child, you'll enjoy it! I went to see the show with my husband and we both liked it so much that we decided to come back and see it again (from a better chosen seat). Don't miss it out!


London Box Office customer

People arriving late should wait at the back and do not disturbed the audience scrambling into their seats!

London Box Office customer

I was very disappointed with the show

I bought tickets for my daughters 16th Birthday as we absolutely love musicals. Honestly, we found the show rather dull, lacking in energy and none of the characters really stood out. The finale /encore songs were the only ones with any energy and by then it was too late. It didn't feel as if the actors connected with each other and at times it looked quite amateurish. I am 55 and have seen a fair few shows and this is the first time I haven't enjoyed a musical. It was predictable, boring at times and lacking in joy or passion until the end. We expected a thrilling, fun, and dynamic production and instead I feel my money was wasted. There was one dynamic female dancer(with a hat on) who stood out and gave out the energy the show requires. I wouldnt reccomend the show at all.


London Box Office customer

FAB!

Absolutely amazing!! As expected plus so much more!! Really completed my day and trip away

London Box Office customer

A great performance!

The whole musical was well thought through and everyone played their parts brilliantly! At times it would have been nicer for the actors microphones to have been louder as you couldn't hear every word all the time.


London Box Office customer

Cannot fault anything , seats theatre, show was all great


London Box Office customer

Super show it's a must see

I liked the show and everything around it and for me it was like reliving my high school days. The music and story line the way it's treated in the show is different so it really does not clash with the movie. The music at times felt louder than the vocals and that the only flaw.


London Box Office customer

Funny

Great show and funny. Not much leg room where we sat but in all a lovely time and a great show


London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

Great music

London Box Office customer

Better than i expected

Not being a huge Abba fan I was hardly running to theatre to watch the show but to my surprise the show is very good. The pace is fast with good comedy moments (mainly supplied by the bride's mother's friends) and also of course songs themselves which upon reflection don't seem to have dated . it's taken awhile to get me there but I'm glad I finally made the trip!


London Box Office customer

Superb and energetic show

Please be punctual for the show. Otherwise, spectators could be disturbed. The finale part was particularly enjoyable when everyone participated in the singing and dance.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant show!

Excellent performance thoroughly enjoyed the show, good atmosphere, highly recommend.


London Box Office customer

Must see

Very good show , the cast look like they really enjoy doing it as well.

Review of Mamma Mia!

11 Sep 2014 in Reviews

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.
