The back catalogue of Abba, one of the most successful bands ever, combined with a great original story set on a Greek Island, Mamma Mia! is a great night out guaranteed to leave you wanting more and it is now at the Novello Theatre on the Aldwych.
Like any bride, our heroine wants her father to give her away. But who is her real dad? On the eve of the wedding three men arrive in a small Greek village not knowing why or to what they have been invited!!
Enjoy the songs of ABBA whilst you watch Sophie Sheridan, the gal who is just about to get hitched, and her mother, Donna, who has to deal with three ex-boyfriends turning up out of the blue!
“A glorious evening of fun!” – Daily Mail.
“The perfect ticket for a feel-good night out!” – Daily Telegraph
Mamma Mia! has now moved to the Novello Theatre on the Aldwych – use the hotel filters to choose your closest hotels when booking your Theatre Break
There are some great nearby hotels but it is really easy to get to from anywhere in London, so you don’t necessarily have to pay West End prices if you don’t want to!
If you do want to be a short walk from the theatre then the 4* Kingsway Hall is nearby. The 4 star Strand Palace Hotel is also close although it is not as good a deal as when it was a three star hotel. For Five star comfort there is the Waldorf or the newly refurbished Savoy!
Further afield, or if you want to be mainly in another part of London and then just come into Theatreland for the evening, any hotel on the Piccadilly Line would be within easy access and access to the Northern Line and Bakerloo lines is a short walk down the Strand to Charing Cross Tube Station so there really is lots to chose from. Look at Kensington with its world famous musuems as a great (and slightly cheaper) area to stay.

Thank you for arranging my theatre break. Saw Mamm mia at the Novello hich I understand has just moved there. Well it fitted in very well indeed and we had great seats at the front of the dress circle, just off to one side. We stayed at the Kingsway Hotel which was excellent and a great position just next to Covent Garden and the theatre so "perfect"!
The first record I ever bought was ABBA so my absolute dream was to see
this play, having sat in a cinema with all the other forty- something
women and loved the film! So taking the whole family along might not
have been the brightest of ideas; My teenage son was frantically looking
around to check no-one he knew was there whilst my younger son sang
aloud throughout the performance and was word-perfect - slightly
But this was a wonderful, feel-good show with music we have known and
loved all our lives. If you want to see a show which leaves you with a
warm glow, come and see this one - its spectacular!
I went to see Mamma Mia on Fri 16 March with my partner and my parents. My mum and I love the theatre and will go and watch anything! My dad had never seen a musical and my partner "wasn't keen on Abba songs"...so off the 4 of us went to see Mamma Mia! All 4 of us absolutely loved it.
The girl playing Sophie (we saw the understudy) had a fantastic singing voice but was fairly quiet on her opening dialogue and we had difficulty hearing her but other than that it was a totally fantastic show. For me, the trio of Donna, Rosie & Tanya stole the show - these 3 ladies were so funny, excellent comedy timing, great singing voices and were just brilliant. I found myself watching them the whole time even when the spotlight was on someone else!
The set changes were so slick and seemingly effortless and the set looked great. The finale was fantastic and had everyone clapping and singing along. Seeing the 3 couples at the end in the lycra outfits was a perfect finale.
A totally excellent show, enjoyed by all 4 of us. This would be a totally fab girls night out for a hen night, birthday party or any celebration - a real feel good show.
Thank you to the cast of Mamma Mia for a superb evening!
