Last night I went to see the Swedish edition of the Mamma Mia musical , which is based on the music of ABBA. The evening was a gift from my parents in law so they, me, my girlfriend Fredrika, her brother and his girlfriend had a nice dinner before we went to the Cirkus arena.
Fredrika and I saw it in London in 2000 so it was especially interesting to see it on home turf now, here in Stockholm. I love the music of ABBA and the composers Benny Andersson and BjÃƒÂ¶rn Ulvaeus are, to me, pop music geniuses. The show is great and we had a really pleasant evening!
It was also some time since I saw a musical, and every time I go I really feel glad that I did. When I worked in New York City, I tried to see a few musicals on Broadway, and the ones that really stand out are Phantom of the Opera and Jekyll & Hyde, the latter with former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach.
Musicals are a great experience, seeing actors/musicians in real life! I really should go as often as I do to concerts.
