Set in Greece, Mamma Mia! centres on Sophie, who is about to be married to Sky. While her mother Donna prepares for the wedding at the guest house she runs, Sophie is preoccupied by the need to know the identity of her father. Behind her mother's back she has invited three possible suspects from her mother's free-loving past to the wedding. To Sophie's shock - and to Donna's unfathomable surprise - they all turn up. But which one will take her down the aisle?

The musical Mamma Mia! continues to pull in the crowds 15 years after it first opened in London in 1999. The back catalogue of ABBA, one of the most successful bands of all time, accompanies Catherine Johnson's story.

(Cast as from 11 June 2018.)

“The superbly performed ABBA tracks and whimsical story line set on a Greek island add up to a thoroughly feel-good evening.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Not a traditional ‘juke-box’ musical.. there is a reason for each song and none of them sound... shoe-horned in... Fun and camp.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Remains..stonkingly, wonderfully, unbelievably good... Some of the finest pop songs ever written... the ultimate feel-good tale.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Abba songs, camp dance routines...platform boots [and] soppy romance comedy... Mamma Mia! is energetic, funny and entertaining.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Remains an irresistible show, full of punchy and hilariously choreographed production numbers, that is full of heart.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“The insanely catchy songs of ABBA ... a Greek island setting... it's impossible not to fall for 'Mamma Mia!'s twinkling charms.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Giving easily pleased tourists somewhere to shelter from the London of the most terrible musicals ever staged.”
