If you love musicals, you’ve probably heard of “Mamma Mia!” before.
“Mamma Mia!” is a classic jukebox musical that first appeared in London’s West End in 1999. The songs are all from the famous Swedish pop group ABBA, you know, the one with Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. The story, cooked up by British playwright Catherine Johnson, is about this young bride-to-be named Sophie. She’s trying to find out who her real dad is, but her mum, Donna, has no idea about the surprise visitors about to show up. It leads to lots of funny and heartwarming moments that keep the audience hooked from the start to the end.
The cast’s singing is amazing, and they really get into their characters. Plus, there are so many funny parts that have the whole theater cracking up. It’s a musical experience you don’t want to miss!
As the musical comes to an end, it turns into a real concert! The vibe is so exciting that by the finale, everyone is on their feet, singing along, and even dancing out of the blue.
MAMMA MIA! is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East & Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal and NGM and presented in Singapore by Base Entertainment Asia. The seamless production, the flawless performances, and the overall F-ABBA-LOUS vibe left an indelible mark on the audience.
