**** Highly Recommended **** In the interests of disclosure, I think I should say that I wasn’t looking forward to seeing Marriott Theatre’s production of “Mamma Mia”. Really, I thought, another “Mamma Mia”! After all, I was underwhelmed by another theater’s production of the musical just a few months ago. Rachel Rockwell’s “Mamma Mia” is spontaneous, joyful, heart-warming, and just a little bit squee! You’ll be singing along to your ABBA favorites like “Honey, Honey”, “Dancing Queen”, “Money, Money, Money”, “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme”, “Knowing You, Knowing Me” and more. I loved it! 4 Spotlights
