Hi guys, it's coming to 12 years since I saw the musical in Singapore on stage and it's also coming to 8 years since I saw the movie version of it. My article will focus on comparing both the stage and movie versions.
The stage settings were really amazing and extraordinary unusual. I was glad that many of ABBA's popular songs, like 'Knowing Me, Knowing You' and 'Mamma Mia' are featured in the stage version and they fit the story perfectly at the right timing.

More ABBA Songs!
I'm excited that more of their popular songs are going to play in this sequel, from what I had read, the songs from the Broadway Musical that did not make it to the first film will find it's way in this sequel. Wonder which scenes will they play?
