|Mamma Mia! More Abba
- The Mayfair takes a chance
THE REAL ABBA GOLD play the Mayfair from December 17, featuring renditions of the Swedish superstars' greatest hits include Dancing Queen, Take A Chance On Me, Super Trouper and Mamma Mia.
The leading tribute band are Abba's second outing to the West End. Mamma Mia!, by Phillida Lloyd at the Prince Edward theatre, opened in two years ago, 25 years after Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest.
But unlike Lloyd's expertly directed musical, The Real Abba Gold offer a string of songs rather than a narrative. Following in the footsteps of Song of Singapore (the last show programmed by the Mayfair) their claim to fame lies in bringing band music to a traditional theatre venue.
