Since watching the film 10 times or more I have wanted to see this musical for the last three years but never had the opportunity. I was in London at the end of June so I thought I would spend one of my days doing my favourite thing by watching a musical. It was hard to choose which one to see because when you visit London (maybe twice a year for me) you have to pick wisely.
To be honest when I was looking I didn’t like the idea of going to a musical on my own but I did it anyway. I felt a little stupid but who cares I got to see something I’ve always wanted to see.
I was sat in the stalls at the back and had a great view despite it being partially restricted. As soon as the first song began I was hooked because Georgina Castle’s voice is incredible, she’s extremely talented! I felt in my element. I knew majority of the words to the songs and I wanted to be up there on the stage with them all.
My first thought was how on earth are they going to do the scenery?! Will it be too much? Will it look cluttered because replicating the scenes from the film must be pretty tough? Well guess what, they pulled it off! The stage props were perfect, I love the way they’ve made the Greek inspired walls.
I don’t think I have one bad comment to say about the musical. Everything about it was great. It had the right amount of cheese, great spells of laughter, fantastic vocals and the cast can sure bust some moves. I don’t want to forget the musicians, they are also extremely talented and it is a shame we don’t get to see them but hats off to them for their performance too!
My favourite part was all thanks to Tanya and Pepper – oh my they are hilarious together! They really did add that little extra to the show. I also have to compliment Rosie, she’s a cracking character too.
You must go and see this musical if you’re out and about in London. It is at the Novello Theatre with Mammia Mia on the outside so you can’t miss it! You will leave with a smile on your face and the songs will stick in your head for the next few days. I will admit that since I have been writing this I have sung non-stop ABBA songs – oopsie.
We can go dancing, we can go walking….
