Mamma Mia! The Party, The O2 - ★★★★★ - Until March 28, 2021


If you love ABBA (and who doesn't?) this is the show for you. It's a delightful immersive musical providing another installment in the Mamma Mia saga, but you don't have to have seen the two movies or visited the musical to enjoy this evening. Björn Ulvaeus working with Sandi Toksvig has created a new story that happens all around you as you enter Nikos' Taverna and enjoy a four course meal and a thoroughly enjoyable evening on the island of Skopelos. This is an opportunity to experience and sing along to all your ABBA favourites in a new context. Fed Zanni as Nikos, Steph Parry as Kate, AJ Bentley as Adam, Julia Imbach as Konstantina, and Jo Monroe as Debbie are singing and dancing dynamos. In fact, t
he entire cast and crew are multi-talented and do an amazing job of creating the Greek vacation atmosphere. From the moment of entering the taverna, the mood is upbeat and carefree and by the end of the evening everyone is dancing and swaying at the amazing disco which is full of surprises. The food is delicious and the entertainment is unbeatable. Welcome drink, four course meal, show and disco are all included in the price of admission. What a perfect way to get out of the doldrums of a grey day in London. Greece and ABBA are as close as The O2!
