Here’s what we think: Review by Headout

If you're looking for an irresistible, feel-good musical experience, and if you’re an ABBA fan to boot, then Mamma Mia! is the perfect show for you. Playing at the Novello Theatre in London's West End, this beloved musical is an unmissable event that will have you dancing in your seat and singing along to the iconic hits from the Swedish supergroup. No matter your age, you will find someone relatable in Mamma Mia! — whether it be the sweet and idealistic Sophie, who is looking for her father to walk her down the aisle, or the hardworking single mother Donna who gets unexpectedly reunited with her past lovers, or the ‘Dynamos’, Rosie and Tanya, the chaotic best friends of Donna. There is just something irresistible about all the characters in the musical.

“Mamma Mia! is energetic, funny and entertaining and appeals to all ages”

Marianka Swain,

4/5

“...with its affirmation that families come in different forms, its sex-positivity and its strong female leads, Mamma Mia also has contemporary cred. Buoyed by Abba’s enduring brilliance, it’s a welcome shot of pure sunshine.”

4/5

“...this is no mere jukebox musical but a well-crafted show. Mamma Mia! remains an incredibly fun night at the theatre and it’s still difficult to believe that the show’s score of timeless pop was not purpose written for this show.”

Player Kings

Experience
Kevin Millard
The performances were memorable-Sir Ian McKellen was outstanding. It was such a treat to be able to see someone of his talent performing on stage. Although I was sitting in the back row at the top section, the theater and performances still felt close and intimate. What a fun night!

The Mousetrap

Experience
Peter Stephens
Everything. Loved the play. Great fan of Agatha Christie and the format. The fact that the play had been going for so long gave it a special aura It was something that was an institution and when we were planning our trip a must see. Actors were brilliant and played to the audience the theatre was a major element of the experience in creating the atmosphere for the play. Agatha Christie, you know what you are going to get, as she works to a tried and tested formula, but you are always surprised by the ending

Bronco Billy - The Musical

Experience
Perrez Ampofo
Headout were amazing- already gave us a cheaper rate for the show, + another £7.91 discount! The show itself was very funny, my bro and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Only downside was that you could hear the trains when inside the theatre

Back to the Future

Experience
Isabella Mayer
Oh my god, words can't describe how amazing this musical was. I enjoyed every minute of it. I am a huge Back to the future fan and when I heard about this musical, I had to go and see it. The cast and music were phenomenal and did such an amazing job. It is definitely a musical that I would see again. I was blown away at how they did the show, especially at the end when Doc and Marty came flying over the audience in their car and did a whole 360° right over our heads! 10/10 performance from everyone! They sure must have been exhausted by the end of the night, due to go how hard they were performing, but it sure was an amazing musical.
