Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia! is one of the best feel-good musicals in town, loved by millions and a feast of smash hit ABBA tunes. It's written by the British playwright Catherine Johnson, who has cleverly woven ABBA's greatest hits into a quirky love story.

Abba's songs were composed by band members Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, one of which is Mamma Mia itself, and everyone loves them. They're joyful, sophisticated, tuneful and compelling, providing brilliant backdrop for the plot. Super Trouper, Lay All Your Love on Me, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me, Knowing You and Take a Chance on Me are just some of them - the list goes on. And on. So far more than 50 million people have seen and loved the show. Imagine that: 50 million people leaving theatres across the world, all feeling uplifted and renewed. That's quite something.

What's the story? The scene is the gorgeous Greek island of Kalokairi, where twenty year old Sophie is preparing to marry her fiancé, Sky. She wants her dad to accompany her down the aisle but there's a problem - she's not entirely sure who he is. When Sophie discovers her mum Donna's old diary, full of entries about romances with three different men, she secretly invites all three to the wedding in her mum's name. You're going to love it!

Absolutely fantastic!! A real feel good musical, the cast put their all into it. The music was great, the costumes were amazing & the actors were brilliant.
Jeanette, 23 Feb 2024
Full on fun
Thoroughly enjoyed performance. Laugher, enthusiasm, dancing and singing. Novello Theatre is old built in 1904 and retains character. It is small. It was full and lots of young foreign student group who really appreciated it. Not a lot of knee space in our seats row A of balcony but others seemed OK.
Pauline, 22 Feb 2024
Definitely go again!!
Great show suitable for everyone

Anthony, 11 Feb 2024
Brighten up a very wet day. Brilliant
Wonderful show. I thought it far excelled the movie. The story and emotional rollercoaster was great.
Michael, 10 Feb 2024
Brilliant show just wish Stevie still had her Scottish accenr
Brilliant show, Stevie and Tobias were fantastic, it was their first week and you would think they’d been doing it for ever. Would have liked Stevie to have been allowed to keep her Scottish accent, was disappointed that it was felt necessary to change it. All the cast were amazing, special shout out for Mazz as Donna, what a voice. Defy anyone not to feel good after watching it. Choreography superb and all the cast looked like they were one big happy family. Slightly spoiled by some girls in front of us singing along (badly) too loudly, all we could hear was them.
Yvonnr, 04 Feb 2024
Brilliant a must see.
Very colourful costumes. The acting was excellent and superb singing. Great to be able to join in at the end. More thought could have been given to the scenery, fairly basic. But could easily see it again.
CLIVE, 04 Feb 2024

Caryl, 31 Jan 2024
Always a great night
A fantastic show with the added bonus of ABBAs great music. This was the opening night for the new Sky and Sophie who were both excellent. Special mention to Mazz Murray who plays Donna, she is so talented absolutely brilliant.
David, 30 Jan 2024
Good old times
You will need to watch the film beforehand to understand the musical. All the actors were wonderful
Yolanda, 29 Jan 2024
A wonderful production suitable for all ages
We were a family party of 5, spanning 3 generations, and all thought the show amazing and well worth the trip down from Scotland. Sometimes a cast will hold back in matinees, knowing they have an evening performance to come, but there was no sign of that here. An excellent show from start to finish. Special mention to the band as they are usually missed in reviews. Having played in bands for many shows, I appreciate what they do and this one was outstanding.
Lois, 29 Jan 2024

Massively enjoyable
I would like to say a massive thank you to the 2 young ladies and the ticket office team who kindly re arranged my seat due to my medical circumstances on 11/1/24 The show was just excellent and felt a huge feeling of joy inside of me and I was able to use the bathroom during the performance without disturbing other guests. I felt very valued and respected by everyone who supported me. All the best to you all kind regards Sukaina Mehmet
Sukaina, 12 Jan 2024
Mamma Mia
Really good seats, really good music, just a shame you could not join in the singing till the end
Wayne, 04 Jan 2024
A definite must see for ABBA fans
Not seen the movies but grew up with ABBA songs so went to see out of interest. Great cast and songs sung perfectly so you could hear each word. Leading ladies were fantastic and ably supported by rest of the cast. Great show and hope you continue for many more years.
Paul, 01 Jan 2024

The perfect lift at any time of the year. Powerful heartfelt singing from Donna in particular really stirred emotions and awe.

James, 30 Dec 2023
It’s a feel good dance party!!
This show is my favorite and I’ve seen most of them! The set is simple but the music is catchy and fun and will make you want to stand up and dance! Also, the ushers are not as obnoxious about photos/videos as other shows, which can ruin the mood! Thank you ushers!!!
Tom, 28 Dec 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed this show. The set was so creatively done, and the acting, singing and dancing were all exceptional. Fun and vibrant. It is always fun to see a show that we have seen before in the movie and see the creative implementation. Cast seemed to have genuine fun performing.

Das beste Musical seit langem
Angelika, 14 Dec 2023
Knocked Our Socks Off!
What a wonderful way to spend an evening in London! From beginning to end, end, end Mamma Mia is worth every single pound! Sarah Poyzer has a spectacular vocal range and is so captivating. Nicky Swift (Rosie/Alternate Donna Sheridan), Sarah Earnshaw (Tanya), Richard Standing(Sam Carmichael), Neal Craig (Harry Bright), Phil Corbitt (Bill Austin), Jess Michelmore (Sophie Sheridan), Christopher Foley (Sky), are all triple threats: talented singers, dancers and actors. Do yourself a favor and go see MAMMA MIA!

Fantastic must see
Lisbeth, 21 Oct 2023
The music was wonderful.
We really enjoyed the show. We sat in 2nd row of balcony and one of my sisters had some extreme anxiety with the fears she had. The other 3 of us did very well. If you have height issues then you may want to rethink balcony seats.
Debra, 19 Oct 2023
Great time had by all
Great show, beautiful theatre.
Annette, 15 Oct 2023

Changsik, 09 Oct 2023
Happy light hearted
This was a birthday gift for my 16 year old granddaughter. It was never on my list of must see shows. My granddaughter absolutely loved the movie so obvious choice for her. So glad I got to see this as well. The cast are amazing, the music took me back to my childhood. The sing along at the end just top of a perfect birthday celebration. My granddaughter is looking forward to this going tour so she can go again. She loved it that much.

Abigail, 02 Sep 2023
A fantastic show for all the family
The show was amazing, fantastic singing and and great acting. Finally was fabulous! A must see.
Bethan, 30 Aug 2023
Great night out!
The show was not a surprise: the songs are known, the storyline is know. The stage is straightforward. But what a thrill it is to see it happen live, in this beautiful venue. Singing was great (especially if you consider it has to be done while dancing, being lifted and what not), musical arrangements added some extra spice to some songs. Softly humming along during the show and then bursting out in song during the finale. What a great night out!
Jeroen, 30 Aug 2023
V happy n I love it
Full of glamour
Mei Bo, 20 Aug 2023

ANDREW, 06 Aug 2023
An upbeat joyful event, never fails to deliver !
This is my third time to see the show. Its wonderful music, with a lighthearted joyful storyline. great cast and very upbeat. Seats are extremely cramped G10/11 dress circle, but this the nature of some of the theatres. I would recommend for all, but suggest age 8+. We had a row of 5 children behind us who were younger, and had been given plastic bags full of sweets that they rummaged in throughout and chatted. Still lived the show but it was a bit distracting.
Debbie, 03 Aug 2023
Wonderful show - the whole family loved it!
Great seats at dress cirkle, also our youngest (9 yrs old) got a great view. Just amazing, tears falling down my cheeks at the end. It made me so happy! Fantastic artists, costumes and story.
Karin, 31 Jul 2023
A funny Summer Musical for all ABBA Fans
Great songs, super actors, amazing voices, funny scenes. Can only recommend. Novello theatre is very squishy though and the toilets facilities are awful for this amount of people.
