A great musical that had me singing along some. Abba’s songs are familiar ones and I am pretty impressed that a musical could be written just based on the songs of one particular music act. I must admit that some of the songs felt forced but on the whole the show was an enjoyable one. Although vocally some of the cast weren’t that great and in terms of pacing some scenes just felt like filler. Mamma Mia! is worth a watch. There are extra shows I believe, so if you’re an Abba fan or just a fan of good musicals then catch this one now at Istana Budaya. The show ends its run on 1st January 2009.
