Mamma Mia is currently playing on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York City. It is a musical with the hit songs of the Swedish group ABBA. It is basically about a girl who is getting married and wants to find her real father, but there are three different possibilities of who it could be.
I wasn't too familiar with ABBA's songs before I saw Mamma Mia, except for their hit song "Dancing Queen" (which is in the show). But I found them all to be very catchy, fun and enjoyable. It was funny to see the audience react to the songs that they knew, when the opening chords from a song began.
Mamma Mia is a very colorful and fun show. It is certainly not like any traditional Broadway musical. But it's good to see something different every once in a while, and I had a great time.
Tickets for Mamma Mia cost $57-111. I purchased a standing room ticket for $21 at the box office. Those go on sale 2 hours before the show starts, but only if it is sold out. I thought that was a great deal. The standing room spots are in the back of the orchestra section, but you get a full view of the stage. And standing during the show isn't so bad because the music is so upbeat that it's hard to sit still anyway.
Mamma Mia may not be for everyone, but it is fun, entertaining night out.
