Everybody likes ABBA. You might not admit you do, but you still do. You might never have gone so far to attend an actual ABBA gig, but this musical is perfect because you can indulge your love of Benny and Bjorn's tunes and claim you're only going for the show -- perfect!
"Mamma Mia!" is based on the hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. It tells the tale of mum Donna on the eve of her daughter's wedding, regaling tales of her wild-child youth to the bride-to-be. But things start to get uncomfortable when her daughter starts prodding mum for the identity of her dad... and three men land on their Greek island paradise to rekindle memories that they first shared 20 years ago.
Mamma Mia is one of the happiest, most feel-good hits in the West End today, weaving in twenty-two of ABBA's catchiest songs.
Guest – “Is there any possible chance this musical will still be running in Sept 2015?? Would love to see it again while we are in the UK at this time
Admin – “I would be amazed if it's not extended beyond 2015. it's already been extended loads of times, and has changed theatre too. it's just a bit too far away at the moment. i would imagine that it will be another month or two before they change it”
