There was a really good party atmosphere at the end of Mamma Mia! which saw quite a large proportion of the auditorium get up, dance and sing along to the final numbers before the cast took their final bows.
Here’s what critics have had to say about the new ABBA-tastic experience Mamma Mia! The Party at The O2…
Collectively, the current Dynamos in the London production of Mamma Mia! – Sara Poyzer, Kate Graham & Ricky Butt – are the best three I’ve seen in all my years of watching and occasionally reviewing the show.
Sandi Toksvig will adapt the story for the new immersive theatrical and dining experience Mamma Mia! The Party which will open in a specially-adapted venue within London’s The O2 on 19 September 2019, following previews from 29 August.
If you are looking for a feel-good film to take at face value and a good unashamed sing-along – Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again fits that bill. There are also many laugh-out-loud moments and you might spot one or two members of Abba, keep your eyes peeled.
Do you need to be a fan of Abba to enjoy the twists, turns and laugh out loud comedy of this gleeful show? No! Even if you’re not a fan of Abba’s music, I wager that a trip to see Mamma Mia! might just convert you.
It is Alexandra Burke whose star shines brightest in this production of Chess. She oozes charisma and presence and at least she comes out of this show with her reputation not just intact but further enhanced.
The beauty and simplicity of Chess allowed the audience to enjoy the sublime orchestration and performances. It really is a beautiful visual delight which shouldn’t be missed in this short five-week run

If you’ve seen Mamma Mia! before, go again If you’ve never seen it… GO! It’s the ultimate feel-good musical and you won’t be disappointed.
You don’t have to be an ABBA fan to get caught up in this wonderful show. Full credit to the talented performers who, with boundless energy, dance and sing their way through the show, giving life to the music and storyline.
When Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus watched people at the musical MAMMA MIA! having such a good time, getting into party mood by the end of the show, he thought to himself, “What if this could continue somewhere else?” The obvious place would be in a typical Greek taverna. Björn, director Roine Söderlundh and writer Calle Norlén came up with new characters …
MAMMA MIA! has announced the full West End cast who will join the show at the Novello Theatre from 12th June.
Mamma Mia is a smash hit West End musical and its easy to see why, I’ve seen it a few times before in the west end – many years ago, now. Therefore I was keen to see how it would work as a touring show.
“I’m probably biased, but I would say that I think it’s the ultimate feel-good night out at the theatre and my parents have seen it twenty times (and counting!) so that’s got to be a good sign!”
