His Majesty's Theatre
Saturday 23 September 2017
Mamma Mia The Musical has arrived at Aberdeen's His Majesty's Theatre for the next leg of their UK tour and they did not hold back.
With a fantastic ensemble of cast, the production was filled with high energy and - of course - music from one of the most popular music groups in history, I'm talking about ᗅᗺᗷᗅ®.
With many laughs along the way, the UK tour of Mamma Mia told the story of a young girl, Sophie Sheridan, wanting to discover who she is by finding her birth-father - only problem; there's THREE potential men who it could be and with no Jeremy Kyle DNA test in the Greek isles, there was only one thing to do and that was to invite all three to her wedding.
Lucy May Barker who played Sophie and Helen Hobson who portrayed her mother, Donna, both led the incredibly talented cast over TWO HOURS of high octane action and feel-good theatre.
Emma Clifford & Gillian Hardle who played Tanya & Rosie respectively were hilarious, they worked so well together. As were Fia Houston-Hamilton (Ali) & Blaise Colangelo (Lisa). Both pairs of performers had amazing chemistry on stage.
Not forgetting the boys. Jamie Hogarth (Harry Bright), Christopher Hollis (Bill Austin) & Jon Boydon (Sam Charmichael) and of course Phillip Ryan (Sky), all performed beautifully in the production as well.
The Tanya/Pepper (played by Louis Stockil) scenes are what giggles are all about.
If you want to be thoroughly entertained, go and see this production.
There was only one problem with the show, I waited until after midnight and they didn't Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie! a man which was a bit disappointing. - I joke.
To Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus of ᗅᗺᗷᗅ® and to Mamma Mia The Musical's producer, Judy Craymer, and her team of superbly talented production staff - thank you for the music and giving it to me.
