I saw this in Glasgow and it was really bad, so I can only assume they staged this musical with stand ins or people they found off the street on the day. At half time everyone was talking about how poor it was, and many left at half time, including me!… Read Full Review

Here is an ethical and moral thought experiment for all you budding Mamma Mia philosophers out there. Imagine that you have just seen an emergency news broadcast detailing the certain obliteration of Earth by an unstoppable asteroid in just two short hours. Now imagine also that due to the strict no mobile phone policy in the Prince of Wales theatre, everyone but the cast has received the ominous news. Do you tell the cast and give them a chance to say their prayers, or do you keep them… Read Full Review

It was my sincere pleasure and extremely good fortune to witness a very special performance of Mamma Mia on January 17th, 2008. After my wife's friend was taken ill and could not use her ticket, I gladly stepped in as her alternate audience member. To say that the combined performances of Lucy Harris (Donna), Jane Gurnett (Tanya) and Hanna Robertson (Sophie) were noteworthy would be like saying Simon Cowell's criticism can be a little harsh at times! Lucy pulled out all the dramatic stops… Read Full Review

Bravo, Bravo, Bravissimo LINZI HATELEY. Even when bravo is repeated for emphasis or used in its superlative form "Bravissimo," it seems a pathetically inadequate kudo to encapsulate the sheer weight of LINZI HATELEY's portrayal of Donna in Mamma Mia. Bravo! Admittedly denotes much enthusiasm and admiration, but simultaneously sheds far too little, if any, light on why I felt spontaneously compelled to shout it at LINZI HATELEY during her curtain call. I'm ashamed to… Read Full Review

This show is light-hearted, it's camp, and it's fun. That's what you should expect from Mamma Mia!, currently showing in London at the Prince of Wales Theatre, just off Shaftsbury Avenue. It's the chick flick of the West End, a blockbuster hit musical that has been a sell-out for nine years. But be warned: if you are looking for something deep and engrossing, you're better off seeing 'Les Miserables' or 'Phantom of the Opera,' as this will not be for you. However, if you like ABBA or just want… Read Full Review

I have seen Mamma Mia several times now with two different casts, and I have always unashamedly enjoyed the show. Call me simple if you will, but the show is "simply" great fun. If you like ABBA music and good humor, then Mamma Mia is for you; of course the pseudo-intellectual wannabes out there will tell you that it is a simplistic, "vaudeville-esque" story propelled, tackily, by seventies pop music. These, of course, are the same people who would go to, and then debate endlessly, French… Read Full Review

In general, Mamma Mia makes for a great night or afternoon out. For the more discerning connoisseurs among you, there are a few things that need to be said.
The leading ladies Rosie (played by Joanna Monro) and Tanya (played by Suanne Braun) are excellent.
Joanna Monro is a great Lady who makes the show so much more fun. One must, however, watch her closely to understand the meaning she puts in every word and expression. Joanna has a subtle class that goes largely undetected and hence, I… Read Full Review

I saw Mamma Mia recently, and frankly, I was under-whelmed. This raving about Lucy Harris is unjustified. She is good, and has lots of energy and expression, but come on; she's not Julie Andrews, and if energy and expression are the only requirements for West End leads, then they would be populated by transvestite Italian taxi drivers. Firstly, she has to sing in a lower key (I heard the conductor say, in an almost "bless her" tone, "E Flat" (indicating a drop in key). Then he mouthed the… Read Full Review

Mamma Mia Review
Do not try this at home
This review, like many consumer products, comes with a patronizing safety warning for the foolhardy. Serious injury or even death could result from attempting to emulate Lucy Harris. In fact, I have a challenge to issue. If those pathetic post-pubescent morons of "Jackass" fame want to truly humiliate themselves, instead of tumbling down hills in outhouses, they should try to sing or act with 1 thousandth the aplomb… Read Full Review

I have seen Mamma Mia twice now and both times it was exceptional. You will of course need to enjoy ABBA music as the entire show is dedicated to it with 24 ABBA songs. The story is a typical story not connected to the group at all but the way in which the story connects to the songs is remarkable.
I honestly can't think of any bad points that are unique to this production.
The ticket prices seem reasonable though not cheap with a good seat costing £50. Cheaper seats are available from roughly… Read Full Review
