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.

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.
I would have given 5 stars but I was in grand circle and children were sitting on backs of booster seats and my view was extremely restricted. Very disappointed.
Had us jigging along with the music from the very beginning.
We see the show about a year ago and it was amazing ,some friends wanted to go so I booked again ,not really expecting the same thrill as last time . Well I was in for a BIG surprise there were some of the original cast but the leading lady was absolutely breath taking her singing was world class
Brilliant show. I had forgotten just how good ABBA songs were.
Toe tappling spellbinding musical about life and love, cleverly interwoven with humour, great pop music, amazing lights, some fantastic dancing and stunning gymnastical stunts. It's uplifting from start. Suitable for all age groups you can't help but smile, dance and be happy throughout. Thoroughly recommend.
we loved it that much we booked to see it again !
This certainly didn’t disappoint, this was all round amazing, great performance!! We were in the balcony and a little concerned that the atmosphere would not quite be the same, however it was electric! We’ll be back
Really enjoyable show with my daughter. LIght hearted and fun.
Fabulous show! Enjoyed every minute!
A thoroughly enjoyable show suitable for the whole family despite a few mild swear words!
Really brilliant show alot of sing and dancing. My daughter, husband and myself loved the show especially my daughter. I would recommend the show.
Good seat & Great show. Valuable！！！

Good seat & Great show. Valuable！！！
Fantastic time with our family
Loved every minute took my 6year old daughter she asked if she could stay and see it again. Only disappointment was the view from seats not as good as made to believe
This show is fantastic I have seen so many times and it is fantastic everytime, the cast are amazing and so gifted, what amazing voices, if you go you will not be disappointed
An absolutely outstanding performance. Bought tickets to surprise my mum having missed the travelling theatre in Southampton. We both agree that this was far better than the original movie! Fantastic cast, was blown away by every single one of them.
I thought the sound was abit quite during some dialogue scenes. Sams vocals made me cringe, in my opinion not good enough for theatre. Donna was great apart but played around with her hair too much, overall, entertaining but prob wouldn’t recommend to a musical friend. Sorry :(
If you’re looking for a feel good show this one will do it! Songs everyone knows, super dancing, cheesy lines! Perfect!
I have been London in many occasions and have seen loads of shows but me and mum thought it was outstanding. No surprise it’s bern around for 20 years another 20 to come.
Fabulous show! Loved every minute of it!
The cast were absolutely fantastic. What a performance from start to finish. If you have not seen this.... What is wrong with you. Book it now!!!!!!!!!! I am going to book again.
We both enjoyed the performance definitely recommend this to see
Really loved the actors and singing. Was exactly as good as I expected!
This was by far one of the best shows I’ve seen, feel good factor all round!! You couldn’t have got closer actors/actresses to the real thing. Would 100% recommend to all!
Excellent casting! Top class singing! Real feel good musical second time of seeing it! And would see it again! Really enjoyed
Took my teenager for her birthday. We had a fabulous time. Funny heart warming. We were up singing and dancing along with the cast amazing night.
Excellent entertaining show from start to finish, feel good factor. Love the interaction at the end. Spot on
