Excellent story intwined with the songs
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 £35 (though I may be wrong there). The venue has recently been refurbished and is clean, bright and modern. The seats are comfortable and the light and music is rousing.
The first time I saw this show I was surprised at the comedy elements, the show being very funny with many innuendos for the adult audience.
If you like ABBA and you like to laugh then go see Mamma Mia.
