Would have enjoyed the show more if I could see it. Big theater and difficult to see from seats.

The story of the show is so shallow and the production reminded me of an end of the year show in school. Only the great songs of ABBA keep the show go on ... but sometimes even this is ruined. The cast is all really lovely people but that is no...continued

Funny, sad and thoroughly enjoyable. Singing and choreography were first rate. Kaye Tuckerman (Donna) and Mary Callanan (Rosie) both have phenomenal voices. Definitely worth seeing a second time.

Did not like it much. Movie is much better!!! More energetic. Actors were slow, poor dancing, our kids did not like it either. It should be a much better show for that price.

The show was entertaining due to the music. Sometimes it was difficult to hear the performers and other times the music was too loud so you could not hear the lyrics. We were seated in the last row balconly which I am sure impacted hearing...continued

According to the program, there are six live musicians in the orchestra pit. I could not see them, but I have no reason to doubt it. Nonetheless, the score is driven by an electronic soundtrack, and I could not be certain that the performers...continued

Except for Mary Callanan's committed, nuanced, and hilarious performance, we found the production to be uninspired. There was a lack of real committment on the part of the actors. We think the sound system is part of the problem because it...continued

Fun family event, great music and second half was very interactive with the audience. Definitely one of the more interactive Broadway plays I've been to!

I love Broadway Musicals. This was my second one. It was really fun and I have the best seat - thanks to Goldstar for that.

I was very disappointed by Mamma Mia. It was too light on plot- just an excuse to string together a series of Abba songs. The sexual jokes were crude, the dancing so-so. It was also too long: close to 3 hours (including intermission and two...continued
