    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!

    100% total rating Mamma Mia!, 22nd April 2017
    This is my 5th time seeing Mamma Mia! (though only 4th on the West End) so I love it! It never fails to make me laugh and leave the theatre feeling uplifting and singing the songs!
    A really good view of the whole stage that felt pretty central. You could see pretty much everything. The distance helps with people in front not seeming to be too much of an obstruction unless they lean forward. There is an overhang from the Balcony, but not where it affects the view of the show. Standard legroom. I'd definitely recommend this seat!

    Mamma Mia is amazing, a real feel good show that had me up on my feet. I never stopped smiling.
    Most of the show could be seen, however when something was happening at the front of the stage people in front of me leaned forward, making it impossible to see anything at all. There was plenty of leg room and the fact that no one was behind me meant I could sit up high enough to see without disturbing anyone else.

    Absolutely outstanding. Dianne playing Donna and amaze playing Tanya was a thoroughly talented combination. The choreography and music were amazing, and the acting superb. Everyone in the audience appeared to have a fun time.
    Sat in Stalls E18
    I saw everything, very close up. I would recommend to everyone.

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.

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 the perfect West End ticket for people of all ages and nationalities!
Mamma Mia! is a must for all ABBA fans, so don't miss out on tickets! 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+
