Mamma Mia! is now in Philadelphia for a limited engagement through Sunday, March 2. The plot tells the story of a beautiful bride who wishes to meet the father that she never knew. It’s been twenty years since her mother has seen three love interests, and the main character, Sophie, discovers much about herself and her future on her quest to find her Dad. The smash-hit show is based on the music of ABBA and the songs are forever favorites of most. Dancing Queen, Winner Takes It All, and of course, the namesake Mamma Mia, are some of the songs which keep the audience enthusiastic and entertained. I think the show has a PG13 rating due to some suggestive banter and themes.

I was fortunate to attend opening night and hands were clapping, and the audience seemed to really enjoy the show. At the end of the show, a triumphant finale left everyone on their feet. The best part of the show is where the musical is staged – at the gorgeous Academy of Music. Tickets ranging from $20 to $105.50 can be purchased by calling 215-731-3333, online at kimmelcenter.org/broadway, Performances include Thursday evening at 7:30 pm; Friday & Saturday evening at 8:00 pm; Sunday evening at 6:30 pm; and matinees Saturday at 2:00 pm and Sunday at 1:00 pm.
