Mamma Mia! the musical, London
Mamma Mia! is one of the most successful musicals in the world, especially in London.
The musical Mamma Mia! has been running in London for more than 20 years and it looks like it will be running for many more.
To date, more than 60 million people around the world have seen Mamma Mia! In fact, following the success of the musical, a sequel, Mamma Mia – Here We Go Again, was released in 2018.
The story is set on an idyllic Greek island.
It is about the friendship between three women and a girl’s search for identity as she searches for her biological father.
All this takes place on the weekend of the girl’s wedding, to the sound of ABBA’s hits.
Mamma Mia is a classic musical filled with joy!
Who is The musical Mamma Mia! for?
If you fancy a cheerful, light-hearted musical with Abba songs, then this is for you.
We have found that the musical is less suitable for children unless they are familiar with the songs. However, we have recently received enthusiastic responses from parents who have been with their children and really enjoyed it.
Heads-up: The recommended age is 5+. The musical runs for 2 hours 35 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
Where Can I Buy Tickets For The Musical Mamma Mia?

ABBA Voyage – A Captivating Hologram Show In London
Not far from the Olympic Park in Stratford, a hall has been built called the ABBA Arena, where a concert by the band Abba takes place every night using holograms.
The band members are not present, although on the opening night the Abba members themselves came on stage to greet the audience!
It’s a unique musical and technological experience, and we suspect we’ll be seeing more of this kind of ‘live’ performance in the future.
Tickets for ABBA Voyage – The Hologram Show In London
Tickets are on sale now for performances until May 2024 and are available on the London Theatre Direct.
Second hand tickets for sold out shows can be found on Stubhub.
We were in the standing area (dance floor) and had a great time. There seems to be a good view from anywhere in the hall, which is not very large.
Heads-up: The recommended age is 6+. The musical runs for 1 hour 30 minutes with NO intermission.
Mamma Mia, The Party
First there was the musical Mamma Mia, then two films and now the party that takes you to a Greek island wedding with food, live music and a good time!
The Party had its start in Sweden and, after a huge success, became a regular event at London’s O2 complex.
The event is up to four hours of entertainment.
A Greek celebration with 3 Mediterranean dishes, including an alcoholic drink at the beginning, a show between each dish, including Abba songs of course, and at the end you can stay and dance to… you guessed it, Abba!
The atmosphere is that of a Greek tavern, with the owner Nikos, his family and friends taking part in the story.
A special mention goes to Noa Sinigalia, a talented Israeli actress who is now part of the new cast.
