A most incredible experience! The cast and staging were brilliant. Standing ovations and two curtain calls. Inspired performances by Georgia Kate Haege as Donna, Carly Sakolove as Rosie and Jeff Drushal as Sam. I would go again and again in a...continued

Mamma Mia! is a fun musical with sing-a-long lyrics so, you can hardly go wrong. We enjoyed it. But, this touring cast is not the best. The women who played the mom (Donna) and two best friends were the stand-outs but, microphone problems with...continued

It was a good show. The female singers were great and strong; the males not as strong but the show really isn't about them.

The music was great because of the songs from Abba, (who were a great band)... but the main actors were pretty awful, the mum and daughter in the play were pretty bad... The mum (Donna Sheridan - Character name) was really really bad... I could...continued

Glitzy production and hokey story with little substance or creativity. Songs and music lack complexity, texture or originality -- pales compared to South Pacific for example. Acting is just fair, singing so-so, decent staging, choreography...continued

Very entertaining! The set change was great and the set, itself, gave the feeling of a Greek style, beach oriented location. My wife and I did enjoy the show.

I've seen this show several times over the 13 years since it first came to L.A. before heading to Broadway. It is always fun, with songs that are so familiar. There were a couple of sound issues during the show I attended, but they seemed to get...continued

Have seen several productions and thought this cast was great. Super fun evening. Go in expecting to hear some great ABBA music and a fun show!

Fun! Fifth time seeing this, from the Prince Edward Theatre in London, the first production in LA at the old Shubert to the Pantages. Everyone I meet that has never seen it says "Let's go see Mama Mia!" So I have to go back. Luckily it's a...continued

This was an energetic performance that had us dancing in our seats from start to finish. Our seats were a bit far from the stage so it was difficult at times to hear what was said or the lyrics of the songs. Because the play is familiar to me that...continued

GOOD FUN MUCH THAT IS LIGHT HEARTED. THE SETTING IS SIMPLE, BUT IT WORKS. THE ACTRESS WHO PLAYS DONNA HAS A GOOD VOICE AND SO DO THE MALE SINGERS. MEET WITH THE CAST AFTER THE SHOW AND THEY WERE ALL VERY NICE.

Below the standards of the Segerstrom Center. A musical suppose to offer first the good singers, which was not the case. Cheap production on the level of a high school preformance.
