Went to see this yesterday evening with my son. He absolutely loved the show, and staff were fantastic. Even allowed him to move to an empty seat due to his short height for his age. The reason for not a full 5, is the show itself can drag on slightly. though the actors make up for that profusely. altogether one of my best experiences in London.

Amazing production! PLUS Massive congrats to all the musicians and particularly the musical Director at the keyboard. Astonishing accomplishment. Utterly superb! Thanks so much!!

3.5 star rating Mrs Tooley from Sussex England


Loved the show and the theatre but was so upset with the fowl language which was not appropriate at a matinee with so many children in the audience which included my 7 year old gran-daughter.shame on you. Veronica & Ellie

3.0 star rating Dawn from Widnes


Love the films but this was disappointing. Stage props/set looked very low budget. Singing & acting was okay but not stand out. It filled an afternoon! Seen it, wouldn't see it again! Compare this to phantom which my daughter & i saw the previous evening was infinitely better in every respect. Mamma mia was fun but not great acting or dinging. Dialogue was way too fast so all words spoken just merged. No pause for breath. It was like they were just reading from an idiot board with no emphasis, punctuation or feeling! Acting was overall poor!

2.5 star rating Kyle from England


The Prince of Wales thatre was very good, staff very helpful, and seating set out in such a way as a tall person can't block your view. However this show is more for the ladies than the gentlemen. Being a big fan of the group ABBA there is a good range of their songs but the singing was a bit weak on a couple of them. Also very disappointed that none of the ABBA costumes were used in the show. On a good note the songs are tied in to the story very well, with some very funny moments. But all in all as a bloke this musical left me very disappointed

2.5 star rating Sue from kettering


The production was very good. But the whole experience was spoiled by the usherette .I was quietly singing along to the songs and repeatedly told to be quiet. Much to the annoyance of all the people around me. They all wanted to sing along but didn't dare as they saw me being told to be quiet. You do not go to a musical to sit in silence.I will definitely think twice before booking tickets at this theatre again.

What we thought

fun Musical LOUD

This is a show that you cannot get close enough to so front row seats are highly recommended.

This is a party and if you're not on your feet dancing along to the big finale then you went to the wrong theatre!
