Oh my lordy, I want to watch this!!! I was in New York when this debuted in Broadway, so suffice it to say I wasn’t able to get any tickets because they were sold out for months ahead. I ended up watching the older musicals because it was easier to get tickets. It was one of the first of its kind, where they take a singer or band’s discography and make a musical out of them. After the HUGE success of Mamma Mia!, so many others followed suit. Not to mention the enormous worldwide success of the Meryl Streep movie version, which a lot of people might not know was based on this stage musical. I can’t wait, I want to see the stage version. I have the Original Cast CD, so I’m familiar with the original version of the songs. Most of the songs were re-arranged for the movie version.
The World’s No.1 Musical, MAMMA MIA!, is coming here to the Philippines!
