BWW Review: MAMMA MIA! Has a Grand Farewell at the FOX This WeekendBWW Review: MAMMA MIA! Has a Grand Farewell at the FOX This Weekend
by Chris Gibson - Aug 1, 2017

MAMMA MIA! officially ended it's farewell tour this past weekend, and it was interesting to see the audience reaction to a show I've seen at least six times. But, I'm a critic. The appeal is obvious really, it's a simple story (book by Catherine Johnson) that allows you to enjoy the undeniably catchy Swedish pop of ABBA (music and lyrics of Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, and Stig Anderson). With the length of time that it's been touring, nationally and internationally, there's no doubt that generations will grow up knowing and loving this music, which, at the time, seemed like a passing fad back in the 1970's and 80's, although I'm not ashamed to admit I own their greatest hits vol. 1 and 2, most of which shows up in the score. The touring show that graced the stage of the Fox Theatre this past weekend (July 28-30) put on a splendid production, as engaging and charming as we've come to expect, and brimming with enough good humor to please everyone.

Combining ABBA's greatest hits, including 'Dancing Queen,' 'S.O.S' 'Super Trouper,' 'Take a Chance on Me' and 'The Winner Takes It All,' with an enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship Catherine Johnson has crafted a plot to expertly string together these more than 20 songs (written by Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Stig Andersson) in a show that is in the top ten longest running Broadway shows list. This production serves up both the bouncy electronic music that is familiar, with mother-vs. -daughter story about contrasting views of what constitutes a family. (more...)
