    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.

    80% total rating Mamma Mia!, 23rd January 2017
    Linzi Hateley didn't really shine as Donna, nor did Sanne Den Besten as Sophie, but the rest of the company was great - especially Jo Napthine (Rosie) and Richard Trinder (Sam) The blue background was sometimes a bit to overwhelming and ~there~ for me, but overall a good show.
    If I leaned back and sat normally I couldn't see half the stage. Leaning forward as I did for the first act I missed the right corner of the stage (where as it happens a lot of important stuff happens). As a result of a Monday evening with not a lot of audience I moved seat during the intermission to the first row of the dress circle. To the price the seat was alright.

    Great cast and singing. Perfect comedy timing and cute intimate moments amongst the uplifting ABBA classics. Guaranteed a good night.
    Fantastic view. Seats are comfortable but would be too little legroom for anyone much taller than I. I am 5"6. If you want to get closer to the action you can lean forward oh the padded balcony.

    Fun show, entertaining. Helpful staff.
    Excellent seats. End of row and at street level. Good view of stage.

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.
Novello Theatre, London interactive seating plan & seat reviews
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.
