    I really like Mamma Mia, and I have seen the show a couple of times. I think this a show that you can go and see and just have a really good time. Its feel good, is bright and light and has a really simple but effective set. The costumes, staging and lighting keep it bright and fun. Its just a really fun feel good show. Be prepared to sing along and get up and dance!
    This seat is advertised as extremely restricted view and restricted legroom and they are not wrong. The ticket is one of the cheapest in the theatre and you can clearly see why. So comfort wise the seats themselves aren't bad the issue is in order to see you cant sit on them. There is no legroom whatsoever and I'm not tall, I think the shortest of my friends I went with just about fit at 5'4". The view is something else altogether. Sat on the seat I could see less than 1/3 of the stage (the very far stage left) and of the 1/3 I could see I could only see 1/2 way to the back of the stage. To make the view better I sat on my knees leaning on the safety rail. This is why I gave the comfort a 1 star as my knees where in pain throughout. This allowed me to see about 1/2 of the stage. Problems include that this slip is high, its in the curve of the auditorium and the lighting rigs are also in the way. Yes the seats are cheap but I ended up sitting on the floor reading a book in act 2 as I couldn't see and just listened to the performance. If you've been before and just want to listen these are cheap seats if you want to see any of the show don't sit here!

    A real feel-good 'night out' show. High energy performances with great well-known music. Personally, the only thing I felt let down by was the story. Everything else in this show is great but the storyline lacked and was inconclusive. If you want a full 'musical' package (great music, performances AND story), I would recommend something else on the West End. Considering this, I would see this show again as I'd be more prepared for what I was going to see.
    Sat in Stalls L12
    Comfortable seat with reasonable leg room. This seat is central, a good distance from the stage - not too close, not too far - with a nice clear view.

    Truly amazing! Great cast, great music, and overall a great feel-good production. Mazz Murray was an amazing Tanya, and was the star of the show in my eyes. Her performance of Does Your Mother Know was a highlight, along with Lay All Your Love on Me. Can't wait to see it again!
    For the price, this seat is an absolute steal. The view is incredible, you really can see everything from this seat. The legroom isn't great, but I think that's the case for most of the seats in this cramped theatre!

    The show was wonderful. Would watch again tomorrow! The atmosphere is great and singing along with all the songs. A really really great show.
    Sat in Stalls T24
    Could see the whole stage. We were sat across T23-25 and they were fab seats. The show was great. Enough leg room even with a couple of shopping bags in front of us. And close to aisle as well.

MAMMA MIA! SEATING PLAN
The great thing about this show is that it can be enjoyed from all seating levels without any moments of action being missed. However for the best viewing experience we would recommend the middle of the Stalls and/ or the front of the Dress Circle.

STORY
Brain child of British producer, Judy Craymer, Mamma Mia! is a jukebox musical made up of the ever popular ABBA back catalogue. Unlike many other jukebox musicals, Mamma Mia! has an entirely original story, written by Catherine Johnson.

The success of the stage musical sparked a movie adaptation of the production, starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters and Amanda Seyfried.

The plot focuses on mother and daughter, Donna and Sophie, who live together on the beautiful Greek island of Kalokairi. Sophie, who has been brought up on the island by her mother, is planning on marrying her fiancé Sky despite only being 20 years of age.

The wedding is to be hosted on the paradise island and, like most brides to be, Sophie wants her father to give her away; the only problem is that she isn't quite sure who he is! After intercepting her mother's kiss and tell diary from around the time of her conception, Sophie narrows down her hunt for her paternal father to three men. Desperate to have her dad around for her special day, Sophie invites all three candidates to the island, much to the surprise and dismay of Donna!

Classic ABBA songs such as "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme," "Money, Money, Money," "Dancing Queen," "Take a Chance on Me," "The Winner Takes It All," and of course "Mamma Mia," can be enjoyed live on stage! Sing along or sit back, relax and let the tunes wash over you!

Not only is the show celebrated for its music, it also contains fantastic choreography and excellent costumes. All in all, the show is a jam packed, frothy and fun treat that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and nationalities!
SUITABLE FOR
Mamma Mia! is a must for all ABBA fans! Also fans of shows such as Jersey Boys and Thriller - Live! may enjoy the show for its classic pop music and upbeat feeling.

Mamma Mia has a few moments of mild adult content.

Age Recommendations: Recommended for children 7+
