My daughter and I are going to the National Theatre (in DC) to see the musical Mamma Mia! My daughter is the singer and music lover in our family. One of the things we love to do is go to musicals (when we can). We've seen Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Hairspray and Wicked. She finds it interesting that I already know most of the music to this one....(age helps me here!). I remember listening to ABBA as a kid, I think I still actually have a '45 with Mamma Mia on it! (For all you 20 somethings, and even 30 somethings, a 45 is a single version of a know, the black disks that went round and round on a phonograph?) :)
To prep for the musical, I bought the soundtrack and am listening to it as I write this's wonderful!
The movie is coming out, and I bet it will be good too! If you want the music though, I would go with the broadway version. This is definitely a new workout music for sure...

Hi Sharon - you will love love love! this musical. Right after I saw it, I immediately bought 2 more tickets and took my best friend. I laughed until I cried - it was wonderful!

Have fun!

PS: I finally put up pics of the new furniture, especially for you :-)

I definitely want to see musicals and plays more often... we have outdoor theater here during the summer, it's awesome! I rarely go though :-(

Sounds like a great time!
