Mamma Mia!

For those of you who know me, you are fully aware of my love for anything musical. My latest musical was, as you guessed it, Mamma Mia! I took my good friend to the play for her birthday last week. We had such a good time, the ABBA songs were used in such a clever way and made the telling of the story so much more entertaining. I had no idea of what Mamma Mia was about before going, but it was so worth it. The basic plot is about a girl who is getting married and learns that her father may be one of three different men. (This "free loving" took place in the 70's) They handled this slightly risque topic humorously. Needless to say, she invites the three men to her wedding and tries to determine which one is her real father. I won't go into any more detail; I don't want to ruin it for you.
If Mamma Mia comes to your town and you are an ABBA fan, I would highly recommend you check this out, you won't regret it.

Yes, ABBA is good fun. I remember listening to them on 8 Track all the time as a kid. I don't know about the musical though. I've never seen it but it seems like a shameless attempt to cash in on ABBA nostalgia. But that is just my humble opinion. It will be interesting to see how well the movie does.

I dig ABBA (who doesn't?) I would love to see this musical, thanks for the recommendation. Now the only trick is getting my husband to agree to take me to a 1. Musical and 2. anything slightly risque. (Jeff could fill you in on those details.)

It's funny that you mention that. The majority of the people rushing out of the theater were women with their husbands leading the way.
