Well, Dancing Queens, alas, the time has come… the colossal Broadway hit, Mama Mia!, is saying goodbye with a farewell tour. I had the pleasure of attending opening night for the Atlanta leg of the tour and this cast is not leaving us unsatisfied!
This is my second time seeing Mama Mia! on stage at The Fabulous Fox Theatre and it was just as much fun as the first time. One, I am a Broadway fanatic. Two, I love ABBA. Three, I am a sucker for a good story. This show is a triple threat. It is also a testimony to the incredible songwriting of ABBA. I grew up with their music so I know every song by heart. But I never knew what powerful love stories they told… until they were used to tell a story.
Do you need to be a fan of ABBA to enjoy this show? Absolutely not! You will laugh and cry and laugh some more. Eventually, you will be dancing with the rest of us… especially at the end. The encore is everything. If you ARE a fan of ABBA, you will get all of your life!
Mama Mia! will be in Atlanta at The Fox Theatre THIS WEEK ONLY! (June 13-18) Click here for other cities on the farewell tour.
