The Global Smash Hit!
So the marquee said. Mamma Mia is reportedly a worldwide phenomenon being wildly loved by millions. Me and Jen decided to see what all the fuss was about. Any live performance on Broadway is bound to be entertaining...add the music of Abba and how could you go wrong?
As it turns out, I only know about 3 Abba songs and they sang about 53. They wove a story (loosely) around the lyrics of those 53 songs. People all around us were speaking foreign languages to one another during the breaks but sang out loud with one voice to each song. In English. It was weird. The people behind me were chattering away during intermission, and I distinctly heard them say, "Sadkfue sldifjjg sewierfgfh Ally McBeal."
My very favorite part was that the protagonist looked exactly like Amy Fritchman. She was perky and cute and absolutely precious, she even danced like Amy. It was awesome.
Anywho, I'm back home now and I ain't leavin' agin fer awhile.
