I saw the show last night and it was simply the best show I have ever seen. The cast were outstanding. It has the most amazing feel good factor. Could not recommend it highly enough (even if you are not an Abba fan, which I am, it is worth seeing).

I will be back to see it again for sure!

We saw the show yesterday with my 9 year old daughter and her 2 friends. Although I think the show was brilliant, lots of energy, I don't think it's age appropriate for 9 years old. Before I booked the tickets I checked age recommendation and the website says age 5+. Not good :( It wasn't just me other mums said the same thing. Seats weren't that good either.

Absolutely fantastic! This is my first ever West End show and it blew me away with emotion and energy that I was near to tears of happiness through out the first half performance. The cast were amazing especially the leading ladies. Rosie's comic performance was outstanding along with Donna's singing performance and the harmonies were amazing between the 3 leading ladies. The show for me outshone the movie version which was one of my favourite films. The only downside was a drunken heckler who was removed from the theatre, however the cast didn't let that faze them true professionalism they showed and made me love the show even more. Can't wait to rebook another trip to see these amazing performances again.

Saw the show last night 9th September. I thought it was absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The whole theatre were on their feet at the end. Brilliant production, great actors, great outfits and great musicians. I cannot recommend it enough. (Interval drinks were delivered to our seats too!).

I have been wanting to see the show for many years and finally got the opportunity on Thursday 13th July 2017 and was not disappointed. The whole cast gave 100% but the outstanding part for me was when Donna sang "Winner takes it all". WHAT A VOICE!!!! I will be returning very , very soon. Congratulations to everyone. Fabulous, fantastic, wonderful!!!!

I saw the show with my daughter on Saturday 11th March 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole show. The music was superb and the dancing fabulous! The comedy within the story made the show really enjoyable and this was well balanced with heartfelt emotion from the actors, e.g. ' The Winner Takes It All' and especially where Donna sings 'Slipping Through My Fingers' to Sophie - Amazing!

From a professional viewpoint, I find the show lacks the story element to hold it together. Everybody over-reacts, and the entire show becomes party time. But why? There's a serious underlying theme which gets lost. There needs to be story that says "if we're going to lose, then let's at least party. Which was the theme at the last days of Hitler in the bunker in a movie made about it. Also, the lyrics which may well explain it cannot be heard and understood. So I was not dazzled because I was not moved. Story. Story. It's everything, and has to be clear.
