just saw the show last night, a little apprehensive about going but took my mums place as she was poorly, wasn't really looking forward to the show if I'm honest!! But WOW it was amazing, daughter and I bopped in our seats from the first moment but at the end we got up in the isle and danced away, fabulous show very funny and what amazing voices the cast have, I'm now booking more tickets so that I can enjoy the show once again with mum when she's better :0)

A totally fantastic show. I laughed till I cried and cried at the touching scenes between Donna and Sophie.

The singing was superb as was the music. The cast made you feel part of the whole experience and were having a ball themselves. The finale is just amazing and everyone was up singing and dancing. Thank you for a brilliant afternoon. I just want to do it all again.

It was spoilt by the swearing. And it was the matinee with lots of children in the audience.

Fantastic show we went sat 26th jan cast were brilliant singing was great it was my brother in laws surprise b/day present and he loved it as we all did , yes there is a bit of swearing and a bit of leg showing which the men loved but the guys in the show also gave us ladys nice treat too ,! And as for a six year old and swearing I should think this went over her head ! Go see lion king etc this is great feel good show , if only one little negative the guy who plays sky comes over a bit yuppyish if that's a word !

Saw the 7.45 performance on 24th January.

The worst show I have seen! The cast can't sing, the sound reproduction was poor. The orchester played loudly for certain actors to mask their singing.

Overtly smutty and too much sexual inuendo. People near us left at the interval.

My theatre loving companion was shocked at this poor performance.

Please refund my money!

Of course loved the production and the cast were brilliant. Only spoiled by the unnecessary swearing. I took my 6 year old grand daughter who had been looking forward to it all year. A huge abba fan.

I was really surprised by the pointless swearing. Speaking to lady behind who had her young daughter with her - she felt the same. Is it not possible, especially on a afternoon performances to CUT IT OUT?

Thanks anyway for a fun afternoon but not for adding BLOODY B******D to my 6 year old grand daughters vocabulary.

What a fantastic show, all of the audience where clapping along and the atmosphere was electric. would thoroughly reccomend it to anyone looking for a cheery uplifting experience. A real "feel good" time.
