My mum and dad went to see this musical when they were in New York last year with friends, and they haven't stopped talking about it ever since. Mum wanted her grandaughters (and their mums!) to have the chance to see it, so yesterday we went to see it in Belfast.
I have to admit here that in my formative years I was an avid ABBA fan and so yesterday I was just in my element. I knew every song - no ... I knew every word to every song! Dolly had been force-fed a diet of ABBA music whilst we were in the States in preparation for the event, but even though she didn't recognise all the music, she loved the dancing, especially when the boys did a bit of Irish in their flippers!
I highly, highly recommend this musical to anyone; the music is great, the dancing superb and the story a good one. At the end of the show the whole audience were dancing in the aisles. Nancy Mon, I believe you would particularly enjoy this.
Don't waste your time waiting for the movie to be released later this year (although the movie does have Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth in it, yum yum!), splash out and go see the real thing!
