This has always been my all time favourite film, so I was delighted when I got tickets for my birthday . Unfortunately it wasn't as good as I expected. The two main characters Sophie & Donna were such a let down. I felt the person who played Sophie was so boring, she wasn't very lively or smiley. She came across as very dull. As for the character who played Donna , she just wasn't the right character for Donna. She wasn't enthusiastic enough & just couldn't sing any of the songs well. However the other actors were all amazing especially donnas two friends, they were exceptional. All the boys were fantastic. The three older men were really great to & all the other dancers. Had it not been for the rest of the cast, this would of been a complete let down.

Took my mum to the weekday matinee (in March), as my parents often played ABBA albums when I was growing up. It was so incredible that at the closing of the final act I literally burst into tears as I was so overcome with joy, awe and emotion. Wow. It was my first ever [Broadway?] show and I fear it has spoiled me for life.... nothing could ever compare. I bought the CD at the show, love it, and hope to pick up another one next week to gift my mom.

Being disabled, I travelled half way across country for this excellent show. These young performers must realise the legacy of the music of ABBA. Four decades have passed since ABBAs retirement and still their music continues as fresh as it was in 1974. Lets hope Mamma Mia continues for another four decades. A wonderful show for all age groups

Took daughter and friend to see age 10, were yarning all the way through, quite boring same set almost all the way through. Best bit was dancing at the end. Go see something else.

Took my children 9 and 11 to the matinee performance and was very shocked that there was swearing in the matinee. The film doesn't use this level of language so why should the stage show? Surely it was unnecessary?

Detracted from the good performances otherwise

My wife and I went to see this show for her birthday, and what a present it turned out to be. The show was great from start to finish and everyone on that stage gave a 101% performance. Everyone in the theatre seemed to be sharing the same experience as us. What a evening . Thank you all so much, well done.

Took our two children (6 & 9) to yesterday's 3pm performance, they love the film and so as we were visiting London from Sweden thought this would be a nice treat for us all - didnt expect the use of words like bastxxd, shxt, blxxdy and especially fuxk to be part of the entertainment and found their use totally unnecessary. My wife and I found ourselves distracted by the expletives and protecting our Children and so were disappointed, innuendo is fine but the language does not need to be so vulgar, at least provide a warning when buying the tickets.. i wont accept that we have reached the depths of this being acceptable.

If you don't take children or you feel this kind of language is ok the show would be good but I will certainly check closer when booking future trips. The age advisor suggests 5 years old and above.
