Last year, as a fairly new blogger, I was excited to be asked to attend events. I still am although I cannot attend nearly as many events this year due to lack of time....
MAMMA MIA! at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia November 2-6, 2011
The ultimate feel-good show that has audiences coming back again and again to relive the thrill has returned to Atlanta! Now it’s your turn to have the time of your life at this smash-hit musical that combines ABBA’s greatest hits, including “Dancing Queen,” “S.O.S.,” “Super Trouper,” “Take A Chance on Me” and “The Winner Takes It All,” with an enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship. Whether it’s your first visit or your fourteenth, see the show that has the whole world coming back for more, because every time feels like the first time at MAMMA MIA!
I have seen the movie over 100 times and so have my kids. We can all pretty much recite the entire thing. We know the words to every song. We sing them even when the movie isn’t on.
When I heard that the Broadway play of MAMMA MIA! was coming to Atlanta, I knew that I would be there in the audience no matter what. And so would my kids.
Since it was showing on my birthday, we decided to make it a family affair.
The sets were well done and it really gave the feeling of being on a Greek island. The sound was a little off on this night. On one song, the actor’s microphone went out completely so you could barely hear him. If they get these sound issues worked out, the play will be fabulous!
This play is not very similar to the movie although the storyline is the same. The sets are different and the live play does not go into as many details as the movie does. There is a difference.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. My kids 8, 6 and 4 were a little confused and they definitely prefer the movie to the play but we all had fun.
The smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to Atlanta, playing the Fox Theatre from November 2-6, 2011. Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” MAMMA MIA! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.
