If you love ABBA, which I do, then you'll definitely enjoy the music and the fast pace of this musical. The story, though, is simple and unoriginal.
Such a great musical, wonderful songs, energetic cast, and a fun story all help to make this show a crowd-pleaser
How does this show keep going. I guess there are more Abba fans in the world than I thought.
I saw Mamma Mia with a friend, and were very happy with the show. The great Abba music brought us back to our days in the 70's. The story was so ridiculous it was fun, and the music impressed us!
I have seen better high school plays. The sound quality for the April 4th show was terrible, with microphones not being turned on for several lines, Sophie's volume too low, her guitar was never turned on, and clipping of the sound for the few stars who could actually sing. Even the dancers were substandard. It is hard for understand how a broadway show could fail to find excellent talent in NYC. Even though all eight of us love Abba, we all wished we had gone to a more professional production.
The show is great if you like the music of Abba. Otherwise, I would not recommend seeing it.
Recently attended (May/2011) at the Winter Theatre Garden and Michelle Dawson played the part of Donna, which killed the magic. She sang so low that it was impossible to hear her. The rest of the cast was wonderful, but Dawson's low pitch was not Broadway quality.
Just don't see anything special about this performance. One song do it for you?
