Tonight, tonight, won't be just any night...

We'ze goin' to see MAMMA MIA!

Ok I know that cross referencing two musicals is probably against the rules -I can't find my Membership Rules and Regulations Book-, but I can safely assume...

ANYHOO... at 38 years and 306 days old, I am going to see my first live performance of a Musical.. Shocking, no?


I've always been a HUGE FLAMING ABBA FAN... I started collecting their music on 8-TRACK no less when I was but a wee fagling. Then transitioned to vinyl (LP and 45). Then jumped on to the cassette generation in the 80's and now I've got them on CD and of course I have ABBA GOLD and MORE ABBA GOLD on the trusty ole iPod and have been listening to them exclusively since Monday. As well we had our friends Jason and Franco over on Sunday to watch "Muriel's Wedding". This evening I think we're gonna watch "Priscilla"... Gotta maximize the ABBA!

I'm that much of a fan that I've gone to Cabaret Mado twice to see "Mado chant ABBA" and two summers ago we went to see BJORN AGAIN (the world's most fabulous tribute band) preform at the Bell Centre.

Yea, like I said, I'm a huge flaming fan... Am I stoked for tonight? All I can say, nay, sing is...

"Friday Wednesday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing..."

My wife dragged me (kicking and screaming) to see Mama Mia in Vegas a few years ago.


From the sounds of things you will wet yourself for sure! Enjoy!

Mental note... *Buy Depends on way home from work today*


I am SOOOOOO excited! We missed out last year when it was in town...

We're actually going with the friends that came over on Sunday for Muriel... They mentioned back in Nov that they were going to see it and so we got tickets as well!

Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait

Sounds like your all STOKED!

Good on you - have fun. We expect a full report tomorrow.

Getting hubby to agree to going to something like that would be like pulling teeth. So enjoy it and tell me all about it.

What ya got to do is buy the tickets (don't tell him)... Then take him out to dinner... Baton Rouge (right across the street from Place ses Arts) When he's all delerious from the ribs, take him to the play, or musical, or show...

My name is Bob. I am a straight male who has seen Mamma Mia.

It was a few years ago (2002, I believe) when Sister and Bro-in-Law brought Dancing Nieces to visit Uncle Bob in Toronto, and we all went. Little Bro Dan was also visiting at the same time. He passed on Mamma Mia.

Uhhhhhh, Bob... you didn't say what you thought of it? Did you Likey?
