Everybody likes ABBA. You might not admit that you do... but let's be honest, you do.
Mamma Mia! is based on the original hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. It tells the story of Donna on the eve of her daughter's wedding, divulging some tales about her wild-child youth. But things start to get uncomfortable when three men land on the Greek island paradise to rekindle those same memories, and her daughter starts prodding her for the identity of her dad.
Mamma Mia is one of the happiest, cheeriest, most feel-good musicals you could ever wish to see, and manages to weave in twenty-two of ABBA's catchiest tunes including Super Trouper, Dancing Queen and Take A Chance On Me.
