Absolutely loved the show. So funny, my sides ached the next day. I hadn't expected this adaptation to be so funny! If you get the chance, go and see it.

Loved loved the show great seats . Staff very helpful.and friendly. . We turned up on wrong night of booking but kindly swapped date seats around. Queues long for drinks not very quick need more staff. Toilets clean.

A really nice family visit to the Marlowe Theatre to see the visiting Mamma Mia stage production. Really good production in nice, comfortable surroundings. Clearly very popular as sold out. Definitely recommended.

I've been to a few shows at The Marlowe and it's everything a modern theatre should be. Great view, comfy seating, excellent accoustics and very good access. The drinks are not over-priced and the queues for the ladies are manageable.
