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!

Our trip to the theatre was brilliant from start to finish. Theatre staff were welcoming & helpful. Preordered program & drinks were as ordered. The whole production was a treat for the eyes & ears, we loved it.
Julie, 24 Apr 2023
Beyond amazing!
Hadnt been bothered before, but wow I'm so glad I went. Simply amazing! Loved it so much we booked to come and see it again in 2 weeks for my friends daughters birthday
Tara, 23 Apr 2023
A great night out.
Even although we've seen the film to see it on stage is amazing. A really lovely theatre. Definitely recommend.
David, 20 Apr 2023
My most favorite musical!
Have watched the show a few times, I absolutely love it! Love the Greek theme and Abba music! Definitely recommend to everyone!!
Petros, 14 Apr 2023
Better than ever!
I saw this show when it was first released in London in 1999 and was thrilled to find that the latest show is even better than the original. My 18 year old daughter and I absolutely loved it!
Deborah, 13 Apr 2023
The show is as fresh as its opening night
Sit back and enjoy for 2 hours of pure magic
Ian, 12 Apr 2023
Amazing Show
Loved it. Singing was fantastic as was the acting.
Pam, 10 Apr 2023
Must be updated
Too much talking. Too slow. Not suitable for young audiences as they require faster scenes and more lighting and more sophisticated scenes and faster turnaround.
Gavril, 06 Apr 2023
Fabulous way to spend the Afternoon
Had an afternoon out with my friend and son. Thoroughly enjoyed the show.
Michelle, 03 Apr 2023
This show is one of those shows which leaves you with the feel good factor … we all know the wonderful familiar music and they were performed flawlessly… a special mention to Mazz Murray as Donna who was fantastic…. Only problem is the toilets (lol) which don’t flush properly!!! Novello theatre need to get the plumber in!! Thanks for a great evening!!!
Karen, 30 Mar 2023
A fantastic musical !
Absolutely gorgeous ! The acting, the songs etc.. All was perfect !! I loved it !!
Mireille, 26 Mar 2023
Highly recommend. Both myself (44) and my daughter (14) loved the show!!
Layla, 25 Mar 2023
The entire production keeps up with the outstanding vocals
As a long-time fan of the theater (and someone who sees 'good' shows multiple times - including Wicked 16x - to experience the dynamic of seeing understudies and others playing lead roles), I can resoundingly give Mamma Mia a warm-hearted recommendation. I'd read that the vocals outpaced the acting, which I didn't find to be the case at all. Jennifer Adab was incredible. The tone, depth and range of her voice enriched the experience. For other Wicked fans out there, Jennifer's voice would sit perfectly as Elphaba! I hope to see her one day painted green as she would easily do justice to the role and its powerhouse vocals! Meg Hateley added brightness to the performance thanks to her charisma and voice. I'll definitely be seeing this one again!
Eric, 19 Mar 2023
Engaging, enjoyable and funny!
Talented actors who engaged us with their talented voices both spoken word and singing. Loved the subtle comic moments. Great show which we thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks 😊
Karen, 19 Mar 2023
Spine tingling performance from Mazz Murray singing the winner takes it all!! Absolutely fabulous from start to finish and definitely left wanting to go back
Melanie, 14 Mar 2023
Fabulous show! I would recommend sitting in the stalls. Balcony view restricted and couldn’t see all of the stage.
christina, 05 Mar 2023
I brought my mother-in-law to the show, and she has never seen a musical! She absolutely loved it and even though we were worried about sitting still so long, the time just flew past!
Hanne, 28 Feb 2023
Feel good fun
Second time seeing this show, cast amazing! Loved it and my daughter is desperate to see again! Thank you for a fantastic performance
Lucinda, 25 Feb 2023
This is a Must see!
Amazing cast, great music, staging was just perfect. Soo entertaining and the atmosphere was spot on! The staff were soo helpful and kind! Would go back again!
Tracey, 23 Feb 2023
Way better than expected
I had reasonable expectations for this show (was a treat for my wife) and was pleasantly surprised how good it was, very professional and very entertaining. Awesome job.
Peter, 20 Feb 2023
Brigitte, 18 Feb 2023
The Show worth travelling for!
The show has been adapted to fit the stage and over time I feel has got even better. The actors on stage hold your attention constantly with their amazing seemingly genuine love for each other. I brought my hubby this time - for Valentines and he loved it just as much as my daughter did - and our older daughter did at the same age, 11 years ago!
Samantha, 16 Feb 2023
Good show !
Great moment with the family.
Séverine, 15 Feb 2023
Die Show lebt von seinem Namen.
Die Show kennt natürlich so gut wie jeder und ist ein “Must See” für jeden, der noch keine Show gesehen hat. Aber Achtung; bitte gebt ein bisschen mehr Geld aus und bucht gute Plätze! Wir wollten Geld sparen und haben daher für ca. 100€ zwei Tickets auf dem Balkon gebucht. Bei der Buchung wurde man schon darauf hingewiesen, dass man evtl. eingeschränkt sieht. Aber das es wirklich so schlecht sein würde, hätte ich nicht gedacht. Ich bereue es sehr und hätte lieber ein bisschen mehr Geld investiert. So konnten wir die Show kaum genießen. Auch war der Sound viel zu laut und alle um uns herum mussten ( vor allem bei der Zugabe) die Ohren zu halten. Die Show selber war gut. Wobei wir das Gefühl hatten, dass hier nicht die besten Musical Darsteller auf der Bühne standen. Gesanglich und tänzerisch war es gut aber das war es auch.
Andreas, 13 Feb 2023
Enjoyed a lot
Was right at the back, in balcony, but still a good view and could feel the energy of the performance. Would have liked opportunity to take at least one photo at End of show for memory. Singing was great
Graham, 10 Feb 2023

Amazing talent, great atmosphere. I'd go again in a heartbeat
Amazing talent, great atmosphere. I'd go again in a heartbeat. Staff were so professional, helpful and nice. Please beware if you are booking seats in the balcony in row F it feels like a vertical drop from that row. I actually froze and had to buy a seat in a different area. The staff couldn't have been more suportive and caring and completely understood my situation and rectified it I. Immediately for me. Thankyou!

It was a very entertaining and enjoyable show, my feet were tapping to the music from the minute the show started, also it was so lovely to look around the theatre to see everyone enjoying themselves especially after covid, it felt like life was back to normal.

One night only
One night in London, what are you going to do? We chose Mamma Mia for our evening activity and we totally happy. Dinner, walk, ice cream and show. Excellent
Graham, 05 Jul 2022
Absolutely mind blowing show
Without doubt the best show I have ever seen, it was incredible from start to finish. I’m a big lad so the seat was a little cramped but nothing to spoil the show. I would have liked somewhere to put a drink, it was difficult to clap with one hand holding a G& T😂 But I have no doubt my wife and I will see show again. Well done to all cast, brilliant show.
Kim, 03 Jul 2022
