Fans of musical theatre have lots to shout about when visiting the capital, with London’s West End being home to a huge number of spectacular shows.
Among the most popular is Mamma Mia, which features an array of songs by ABBA.
Having opened at the Prince Edward Theatre back in 1999, the show has gone on to become one of the hottest tickets in town, and was even adapted for the screen, with the movie breaking the British box office record as the highest grossing film of all time.
Since 2012, Mamma Mia has been performed at the Novello Theatre in Aldwych, and anyone interest in seeing the show will be pleased to hear that the booking period has now been extended until October 25th 2014.
With tickets for many of London’s top productions at a premium it’s always a good idea to book well in advance to avoid disappointment, and many people have been waiting for this one to extend its run, with all performances for the next few months currently sold out.
The story itself focuses on a young woman trying to determine the identity of her father as she prepares to get married on a Greek island.
With three possible candidates, she has to know which is the right man to walk her down the aisle, and with the timeless songs of one of the world’s most famous bands helping to tell the story it’s little wonder that Mamma Mia has become so popular.
The Novello Theatre can be accessed from Covent Garden tube station, which is on the Piccadilly Line, and is close to a number of major attractions such as Somerset House and Waterloo Bridge.
Among the songs featured in the show are ABBA classics Dancing Queen, Thank You For the Music and of course Mamma Mia.
