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 the perfect West End ticket for people of all ages and nationalities!
Best seatsThe 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.
