Mamma Mia!

The other night I had the chance to see Mamma Mia! at The Tobin Center. 

It’s the show Farewell Tour and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of seeing it at one of my favorite places. 

All I can say is WOW! What a show. 

I love ABBA, I liked the movie, so I was really looking forward to a good show. And I wasn’t disappointed. 

Right from the opening note, it was amazing. 

If you don’t know anything about the play, here’s a little snippet of what it’s about. 

The long-running Broadway musical Mamma Mia!, which ended its New York run earlier this season, has announced that it is embarking on a “final farewell tour” in the 2016-17 season that will hit some 30 cities across North America.

The show, which is built around the songs of ABBA composers Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, closed on Broadway September 12, 2015, after a 14-year run. It is still playing in London’s West End, continuing an 18-year run.

But my most favorite part of the play was the music. There is just something about ABBA music that makes you happy. 

Here is the list of music that the sang and danced to. Not only on the stage, but in my chair. 

  1. Overture/Prologue
  2. Honey, Honey
  3. Money, Money, Money
  4. Thank You For The Music
  5. Mamma Mia
  6. Chiquitita
  7. Dancing Queen
  8. Lay All Your Love On Me
  9. Super Trouper
  10. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
  11. The Name Of The Game
  12. Voulez-Vous
  13. Entr’acte
  14. Under Attack
  15. One Of Us
  16. S.O.S.
  17. Does Your Mother Know
  18. Knowing Me, Knowing You
  19. Our Last Summer
  20. Slipping Through My Fingers
  21. The Winner Takes It All
  22. Take A Chance On Me
  23. I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do
  24. I Have A Dream

My favorite songs would be:

  • Lay All Your Love On Me
  • The Winner Takes It All
  • Take A Chance On Me
  • Waterloo

I’m going old school on the video.

I’m so glad that I went to see the play. 

Now, I’m off to watch the movie on my phone.
