Last week I went for the very first time to see a musical. I chose Mama Mia, because it's one of the most famous ones. And I wasn't desappointed at all. Actually I had a really great time with my friends seeing this dynamic show and singing ABBA's enternaining songs. I hardly noticed any bad points, even though nothing can be perfect. I will definetly recommand anyone to go and see this show. … Read Full Review

Saw this production Sat 11th Aug 2012. Really disappointed, especially by the singing! It was at best average, in fact some of the lead characters were very VERY out of tue and it felt like a school play rather than a West End show. It actually reminded me of lots of drunk women at a wedding. The girl who plays Sophie had an especially weak voice. Overall disappointing. Wicked, Ghost, Les Mis ina different league… Read Full Review

As a 30th birthday present from my husband we went to the West End yesterday to see the much hyped Mamma Mia. I LOVE the film and had heard such good reviews that we were both expecting great things. Expecting to leave the Theatre singing and on a high we actually left feeling a little flat at the 'ok' show. We were expecting a much bigger supporting cast - bigger songs & dance routines, more 'Greek Local' characters. The actors were good - well the 6 older ones were at any rate - giving… Read Full Review

Mamma Mia! has to be the BEST West End Musical I've ever seen. The show was very enjoyable, it was very hard to not sing or start dancing out of your seat to the catchy songs which were sang top quality by the brilliant cast; towards the end of the show everyone was out of their seats dancing and singing! Great atmosphere to the entire theatre. The cast were extremely talented in singing, dancing and of course acting; the way how the scene's changed with the set moving fascinated me- I was… Read Full Review

Mamma Mia was the first musical I ve been to and I originally liked Abba songs a lot so i was a bit scared to be disappointed about that but actually the actors were all very good and they could sing very well. The atmosphere was very nice, and u leave the place with a very nice feeling.The main actress and her mum were very good, both acting and singing.
Definitely worth going, for all ages… Read Full Review

we saw Mama Mia just before Christmas on the 21st Dec. 2010 (matinee performance). Having seen several other shows in the West End, all of which were excellent, we were very disappointed with this production. There were 4 understudies taking the major roles, the acting and singing was mediocre at best, and the overall impression was that of an amateur production. It was certainly not of the standard of any of the other West End shows we have seen. Maybe we were just unlucky?!… Read Full Review

Today was the second time I've been to Mamma Mia in London and it was the second time within a month. Before that, I was thinking that on stage it could not be as half as good as the movie. However I noted after my first visit, that it can be even better on stage. After that, I bought the CD with the original cast and I have to say that I understand some people when saying that the previous cast (before summer 2010) was not that good. Meanwhile ther have been some changes in the cast and the… Read Full Review

I went to Mamma Mia as part of a 60th birthday celebration for my mother. It would be fair to say, it wouldn't be the kind of thing Id chose to go along to normally.
I found the acting and the singing average at best (particularly some of the singing - quite weak).
I found the plot fairly daft - the actors would be discussing something and then break out into song with a very weak link between the dialogue/plot and the song they were singing - it was almost comical in parts. Basically it… Read Full Review

A night full of surprises. I attended the November 26th performance of Mamma Mia with some trepidation. After all, I made no secret of my suspicion that the decision to cast Niamh Perry as Sophie was partially influenced by myopic commercial "TV Land" considerations, considerations I still don't feel were in her long-term interest nor in the interest of the West End. This is why the reader should assign double weight to what I am about to write.
I doubt anyone with his or her eyes closed… Read Full Review

I went on 21st Nov. The singing was at best mediocre. The chemistry and acting was poor. The costumes showed very little imagination or innovation. Extremely disappointing. Wouldn't recommend it… Read Full Review

It was pure delight to watch the movie. Laugh, cried and sang along the ABBA songs. I enjoyed the overall acting. In one word "wonderful". Made me remember the old days... Do see it, and judge for yourself. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

Very good actors and singing. The show made it seem like you were watching a real life drama being played out. Also, Linzi was great, I plan on seeing it again. I saw the movie but thought they left out some good songs like Under Attack… Read Full Review

The songs were all really good separately. However, the plot was very loose, unexciting, and the songs didn't seem to mesh with the story. I would buy the soundtrack, but I won't go see the show again!… Read Full Review
