Before seeing Mamma mia the first time, I thought that on stage it could not be as half as good as the movie. However I noted, that it can be even better on stage. After that, I bought the CD with the original cast and I have to say that I understand some people when saying that the previous cast was not that good. Meanwhile there have been some changes in the cast and today's performance (my second visit) was again overwhelming. The main attraction of the cast for me is Jessie May as Sophie. Besides the fact that she looks gorgeous, she has the voice of an angel. When she sings, it really touches me deep inside. She'll have a great future. Linzi Hateley as Donna is good, but the first time I've seen it, the part of Donna was sung by Sara Poyzer and she gives much more life to the character, also with her voice. She is more the rock mother. Excellent performances of Catherine Russell as Rosie and especially Harriet Thorpe as Tanya. She is great. An absolute MUST for everyone!

Mamma Mia was absolutely fabulous. It is the best West End show I have ever seen. The characters were excellently played and they all had really unique styles of singing. I have been twice and I want to go more and more. Thank you London for having so many great Theatres with so many amazing shows!

Myself and two close friends went to see this show for our 40th celebrations and were completely blown away. What a Show!!! The cast were extremely talented. Laughter and singing, what more could you ask. My friend and I were so blown away we have booked for August and we're bringing our daughters too. Can't wait!! x

Me and my mum went to see Mamma Mia, because I was heartbroken over not getting into a University I wanted. Needless to say that after this experience there were only tears of happiness and a rhythm in my step! I loved every minute of it. Especially Melissa Jacques as Donna was phenomenal; absolutely inspiring!

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!
