This is what musical theatre in Boston is all about!
I saw Mamma Mia! last night at the Colonial Theatre in Boston. The cast was exceptional! I'm probably an average fan of ABBA, whose songs the musical is based on. I knew maybe half the songs, but some people around me knew all of them. It was funny when an actor would start singing an ABBA song and there would be murmurs in the audience of recognition and smiles at how well the song fit into the story line.

Dee Hoty as the mother stole the show. She rocks. It really seemed like she had a great time performing. Michelle Aravena as the daughter also had a beautiful voice. My wife enjoyed all the young men with their washboard abs. Craig Bennett looks a lot like the guy who played the desk clerk on ER.

If you have a chance to see this play, do it.
