Mama Mia Here We Go Again!

It’s always fun to go to the theatre, I must admit going out with KK has been harder due to her autism and ADHD. I find it hard to stay calm and not tell her to stop! doing things that will attract unwanted attention from people. over the years I’ve had horrid comments and stares.


So being with Lou and Hope I feel a little more relaxed, and given it’s a special performance for people to not hide their quirks. The show set off with introductions of who was playing what part, which was a fantastic extra step. Brightly light stage howling with laughter and Keira singing along to the tunes, she absolutely had a great time and even wanted to see if there was more at the end! This cast was different from the cast I had seen many moons ago. but it was still good kept the story running and had a lot of giggles along the way. shows that you can be a strong independent woman, have loved after loss, a very endearing and touching storyline that shows sisterhood as a strong bond. A lot can be learned from Mamma Mia, one thing for sure looking in diaries unless allowed can lead to a very hard lesson . . . !

Mamma Mia!


Overall I would give Mama Mia 4/5 stars
