Mamma Mia!

Early Bird: Save £20 on selected tickets, plus no fees when booking 4 months in advance.*

It started as a hit song by ABBA, then it became a musical, and now it’s a phenomenon. Mamma Mia! first premiered in London and has since been seen by tens of millions of people across the globe.

Set on a mythical Greek island in the 1970s, the musical Mamma Mia! tells the story of Sophie, a bride-to-be who wants nothing more than her unknown father to walk her down the aisle. So, she invites three of her fiercely independent mother’s ex-lovers to her wedding in a move that could make or break her special day.

Scriptwriter, and celebrated playwright, Catherine Johnson and composers Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (two of the four ABBA band members) weave ABBA classics such as ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Take a Chance on Me’ into an original narrative that is funny and ironic, occasionally cheeky and unapologetically optimistic.

Mamma Mia! is beloved by the world. With a striking number of audience members seeing it two, three and even four times, at any moment this West End triumph is playing on at least three continents. Now at the Novello Theatre in London, Mamma Mia! is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary and there has never been a better time to buy your tickets to this uplifting show.

    The show itself was amazing. Unfortunately it was a shame I could not enjoy it more, considering we paid for one of the better seats. There was a company of visitors from another country (with name badges) who reserved the first 3 rows of the dress circle and the two gentlemen in front of me and my daughter were a pain from beginning to end and I could not hear it all or see much when they kept bopping their heads together, giggling and even putting their drink glasses to their eyes as binoculars setting off the rest of their party next to them. Very disappointed when I paid so much.

  • Rather dissapointing

    I saw Mama Mia years ago when it first appeared in London and thought it was excellent. Last night I was disappointed in quite a few ways. The main character (Tania) lacked the appeal that I remember and I found her singing very nasal. Her 2 friends and former band mates were great and funny but not nearly as hilarious as the originals were. The play seemed to rush from song to song and none of the singing was as good as Abba. The end was a bit better as the cast managed to get the crowd up on their feet but it says a lot that we all had to be cajoled into it!

    At its heart it remains an irresistible show, full of punchy and hilariously choreographed production numbers (courtesy Anthony van Laast), that is full of heart. The show treads a fine line between cheeky cheesiness and sincerity, but the cast must provide the latter or the former collapses, too. As the mother and daughter at the centre of its story, Helen Hobson and Charlotte Wakefield anchor it with both. Hobson lends mother Donna a tough, gritty heart, nowhere more so than in the anguished feeling she brings to The Winner Takes It All. Wakefield, who made her West End debut on this same stage in Spring Awakening, is radiantly lovely as daughter Sophie, whose attempt to discover her father’s identity drives her to a bigger discovery of her own.

    But what is it that makes the show so appealing? Well, quite apart from having some of the finest pop songs ever written, Mamma Mia! is the ultimate feel-good tale of love conquering all. It is completely uncynical and consistently compelling – it's the perfect show for someone who says they don't like theatre, or who "doesn't do musicals".
