It started as a hit song by ABBA, then it became a musical, and now it’s a phenomenon. MAMMA MIA! first premiered in London and has since been seen by tens of millions of people across the globe.
Set on a Greek island, the musical MAMMA MIA! tells the story of Sophie, a bride-to-be who wants nothing more than her unknown father to walk her down the aisle. So, she invites three of her fiercely independent mother’s ex-lovers to her wedding in a move that could make or break her special day.
ABBA classics such as ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Take a Chance on Me’ are woven into an original narrative that is funny and ironic, occasionally cheeky and unapologetically optimistic.
MAMMA MIA! is beloved by the world. With a striking number of audience members seeing it two, three and even four times, at any moment this West End triumph is playing on at least three continents.
Now playing at the Novello Theatre in London, there has never been a better time to buy your tickets to this uplifting show.

Having grown up in the seventies and watched ABBA from Eurovision winners to mega band , it was a truly wonderful experience to see their music being used in this way
wonderful. tickets collection was fast and easy. the show was wondeeful music and acting. well done
Absolutely loved it!!! Well done to actors/singers!
Absolutely amazing show, brilliant cast, well worked, staff really helpful and courteous. Well done.
Great show treat yourself and go escape to Greece with a Swedish them tune and you will know all the words the finale is a riot don’t leave to soon ..close you can boogie...
From the start, the intro of Abba Music bursts got you ready for what was to be expected. The end of the show great first time left a show exhilarated as we all stood up and danced the ABBA tunes. well done great cast!
Such a great performance, full of energy, fun and laughter. They cast had us singing along and up on our feet by the end of the show. So enjoyable!
We took myour granddaughter for a 10th birthday treat and she absolutely loved it. I have to say that it was one of the best musicals that I have seen, thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone. The singer who played Donna had a wonderful voice.
The best musical show I have ever seen! The lady who played Donna was insane and it is very much with the watch! Would go and see it again and again!
There are a few signs to discourage audience singing, until the end, but the audience doesn't always comply. Something to "live with". If u worry about it too much it will spoil the show! Donna and Sophie were really really good. Great fun all round. Could go every week!
The show was good but I wish I had bought the mamma mia the party tickets so we could have danced and enjoyed it more.
The set could have if changed more but high quality singing.
Excellent performance. This is as close to seeing the real ABBA as we will probably ever experience. Costumes used in the closing sequence were fantastic. I am not an ABBA fan until I saw this performance.
Saw this show Mama Mia with my granddaughter 12th Sept. Even though we sat second from back, could see everything clearly. Sound was amazing, and acting great.Unfortunately had to leave before end to catch coach. Brilliant show.
I have never left a show feeling so happy and joyful before. From the very beginning, to the very end, I had the biggest smile on my face. These actors and actresses do not get enough credit for all their hard work. I would highly recommend this show to anyone!!
What a gorgeous show .. just perfect performance .. my wife was so happy to attend the event ... Thank you
Really enjoyed the production, of course the music and the quality of the singing voices. What concerns me is the use of what I consider bad language in script. 3 words beginning with b and 1 beginning with c. I just wonder if this is necessary especially as there were a number of small children in the audience at performance I attended.
Everyone who work there was super nice, mamma Mia musical was gorgeous! It was my best musical ever:) Those who are planning to watch this musical will never regret
Excelent show really enjoyed it
It was an amazing show. The Theatre should have had a toilet for men instead of a man/handicapped toilet.
Fantastic Show!! Could watch it over and over again
Great show Funny, enjoyable and guaranteed to make you smile. Wondered how fresh it would be after having seen film a few times - but even better on the stage.
We loved the show and really didn't want it to end!! The cast were amazing and we had really good seats!! It really is the best show we have ever seen!!
Excellent show, only spoiled by the very uncomfortable seats and the extremely cold “Air Conditioning “?
An amazing show, only spoilt by a poor view. Guess that's just the consequence of cheap seats! Highly recommended to all, we took our 7 year old and she absolutely loved it, although she was already addicted to the film. My only criticism for the younger audience was the frequent mild swearing that you don't get in the film.
Still as good as the first time round! Brilliant music and so much energy, you can’t help but leave feeling happy. Worth the ticket price!
Amazing show and such a talented cast! So much fun dancing at the end!
This amazing show will keep you dancing from start to finish! Amazing cast beautiful costumes x
The cast were amazing and extremely talented i was treated to the show as a birthday gift and I’m wishing I could replay the show over and over . Worth every penny
Excellent fab singing I think they all were excellent brilliant Dancing will tell all my friends they must go and see it
not to say but i’ve seen the movie about 50 time and i had night expectations and all were exceeded! the actors were fantastic and the orchestra as well the props lighting and costumes were brilliant and the atmosphere is to die for. 10/10 would recommend it.
A wonderful musical with very professional actors!!!
Very good show. Worth to buy it.
I first watched this show 20 years ago and now 20 years later returned with my two children who absolutely love ABBA and both films! Abba is in their blood. They were not disappointed and were simply beaming throughout the performance. It was wonderful to watch their faces! My daughter knows the lyrics of every song and was thrilled that there are far more songs in the theatre production than the film. A wonderful evening with a very strong cast especially the role of Donna, what an amazing voice. I won’t leave it another 20 years before returning again.
Absolutely awesome. It was far better than the film. From the first note to the last I was totally entranced. We will definatley see it again.
It was a great night on a fabolous place!
Fab show, cast amazing
It is impossible to describe in words! Since childhood, a favorite group, all songs - by heart. Beautiful choreography by Anthony Van Laast! Great direction. Artists are beyond praise. To tears! Will definitely be back as soon as I am in London next time!
Brilliant night lots of laughs- best show I’ve seen
Amazing! Music, dancing, humour. All wonderful.
This is the second time I have been to see this show. I brought my husband and teenage grandchildren who thought it was so fantastic. I felt the show had improved on the one I had seen 7 years ago. The music, dancing and sets we’re expertly done. I would definitely see the show again.
