Mamma Mia!
Student’s Name:
Professor’s Name:
I bought a ticket to watch the old time romantic musical comedy film titled Mamma Mia! The film is based on the song of the popular pop group of artists called ABBA. The show took place after the renovation of the Erie Playhouse from October 26th to November 19th.The play was meant to open the 101st season of the community theatre. The audience was mainly people in their 40s and 50s. The story evolved around a bride named Sophie who had been raised by a single mother who refused to tell her about her father. Sophie decided to search for her mother Donna’s past with hopes of finding her father, the man she so much desired to walk her down the aisle. In her efforts, Sophie brought three men Sam, Harry, and Bill from her mother’s past with the help of Donna’s diary.

Besides, the film had no well coordinated voices could hence could not give out the actual Abba voice in the original Mamma Mia. All the choreographed musical members were in bright blue and white costumes. Thus, it was a clear indication that they were trying to represent Greece. However, I expected much more flashy costumes, given the fact that the modern day flashy cannot be compared to that of the 70s and 80s. Also, there was no clarity in the comic of the song which made the act a mismatch with the whole play. Apart from the lighting, there were no other visualizing effects applied in the film. Therefore, the audiences were less engaged in the film. Contrary to the fact that the playhouse had undergone renovation and much space was created, the director did not take much initiative to use the space at his disposal ...
