Dancing Queen

I have not yet talked about this kind of musical: the jukebox musicals. If you know ABBA, you will know some of Mamma Mia’s songs. That is what a jukebox does: it forms a plot around the songs of a musician or band. What do I love about Mamma Mia?

Songs:

It has one of the most fun song list. Literally, basically all of the songs are happy . You want those kind of song lists to exist. You need that balance or else there wouldn’t be a good balance. You need the right balance in order for there to be the sad songs especially once you reach the tragic musicals.

Plot:

Yes, with the jukebox musical style, the plot is a bit weak, but it still is incredible to see unfold. It is so light-hearted. The storyline might be basic or might seem silly. The way they picked the songs does work with this plot.

Characters:

I do love the characters of Mamma Mia. I am the most connected to Sophie, our protagonist- it is the easiest to follow her journey outside of the other characters. I still feel like I am getting to know ALL of the major character despite it being 12 years since falling in love with Mamma Mia.

Conclusion:

This has been an interesting blog series. This one has been one of the hardest-it has felt like forever since I watched the film of Mamma Mia, but I still love the musical.

Favorite Song: Dancing Queen

  1. Mamma Mia is my favourite musical. It’s so fun and the music is so good and it just has a special place in my heart even if other musicals are logistically better. Even the movie, which a lot of people dislike, I still enjoy a lot and watch every time it’s on TV.

    • The movie is how I even fell in love with Mamma Mia and just a year later saw the stage show. 2008 was when I saw the movie and 2009 was when I saw the stage show.
