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!

Amazing experience, so much fun.

Really enjoyed Mamma Mia, the actors were fantastic and the music so catchy, lots of laughs, head bobbing and standing ovations. Overall just a superb experience.

Took my 12 year old daughter to see the show as was a fan of the film and she absolutely loved it ! The energy from the stage was electric and the music fabulous. The queue for entry was long but it went pretty quick ,to get in , they were checking Covid passports and lateral flow tests whilst waiting We pre booked drinks and picked them up with no problem too .

No atmosphere -left before the first interval

Bought tickets for this show for my daughters 18th as she loves the films. We were expecting the room to be filled with singing and an exciting vibe, unfortunately it was not! The actor's were good, although they did seem to be in a rush with their lines?!the singing was amazing and the costumes were brilliant but this not enough to make us stay. We left shortly before the first interval as we were joining in with the singing and getting dirty looks for it!I appreciate not everyone came to the show to hear another member of the public singing but it was at a low level and I thought thats waste point of a musical,especially one like Mumma Mia? Even bumped into another attendee in the toilets just before we left and they could not understand also why no one was singing along. I would not recommend this production if like the film you love singing along and enjoying yourself.

Amazing! The choreography was just the best ever. All timings were perfect. I loved the solo by 'Donna' incredible powerful proformance.

Absolutely loved the music, the actors and the lighting. However, I am of the opinion that the story line was below average and there is room for considerable improvement here. However, the show was excellent and I would go again for the lovely actors and music, BUT, would suffer the story line !! I am also a professional writer for my church magazine at Croydon Minster - televised Mid Night "Mass" this last Dec. 2019 .
