Synopsis
Put Abba’s own Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus together, Mama Mia! He succeeds in cramming over 20 songs from the Swedish supergroup into a threadbare story. It goes a bit like this: Young Sophie gets married and seeks to decide one of the three men her father is. It’s like that. Wisely, with the songs, the musical does not mess around, except for adding any dialogue or getting some of them performed by a guy (it works extremely well). Abba fans will jump on this import of the London production, but it should also be considered by conventional fans of musical theater. After all, the songs of Andersson and Ulvaeus often sounded as if they were more than isolated pop gems and were simply part of a longer story.

Reviews

AWESOME
This is a AWESOME CD and i hope everyone will get a chance to listen to it. I LOVE this CD even though I haven’t seen the show. People of all ages will enjoy this CD. There is all kinds of music on this CD so if your not really in to show-tune musical music its ok because a lot of the music sounds like isn’t show-tunes but some do so everyone will enjoy it.

Mamma Mia
Don’t know anything about this soundtrack, but I saw the play at Mandalay Bay last week, and I loved it. I really liked ABBA to begin with, but the musical was funny, and it ties so well into the songs. I would pay to see it again.
