“Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again
My my, just how much I’ve missed you?”
Who can forget the lyrics of this catchy ABBA song. Or this other song:
“So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me”
They are all featured in the MAMMA MIA! musical and I love every minute of the show from the beginning to the end, packed with one nostalgic tune after another. Not to mention, a very fun and engaging cast for this rendition.
Rachel and I attended the gala premiere in Singapore on Thursday night. This is the first time watching MAMA MIA! for both of us and we are not familiar with the storyline. Nonetheless, we were thoroughly entertained throughout the night and find ourselves humming to the songs.
Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless hits, this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship tells the story of a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father on the eve of her wedding, bringing three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads.
Sounds complicated, but it is rather endearingly presented. Love it!
The worldwide smash hit musical has enthralled more than 65 million people around the world and finally returns to Singapore:
Be sure to stay till the end to catch the encores. You can’t get enough of ABBA’s songs:
