Along with shows like “Les Miserables” and “Cats,” “Mama Mia” is one of the most popular attractions to ever play The Fox. It first came in 2002 and the engagement this week marks its 7th visit. This bouncy and bright musical is a near perfect engagement for Thanksgiving week.

The simple story is of a 20-year-old girl who lives on a small Greek vacation isle with her single mother. Mom runs a resort on the island. The young girl is about to be married, so she hatches a plan to find her biological father so he can give her away on her wedding day. As the old saying goes, complications ensue.

The score of “Mama Mia” is all from songs by the internationally popular group ABBA. The story unfolds like a disco musical with a lot of flair, color, comedy, dance and a touch of the racy. The show succeeds or fails on the quality and chemistry of the principal cast members, and in the company at The Fox this week, you going to see the very best.

In some respects, “Mama Mia” becomes an audience participation show at the curtain calls and what happens immediately afterwards. On opening night at The Fox, the audience was whipped into a dancing frenzy. You’ll most likely leave thinking something akin to the title of one of the songs, “Thank You For the Music.”

“Mama Mia” will be lighting up the stage at The Fox through Sunday November 27th.

    Best Ever? Dancing Frenzy? How was the crowd? You never tell us. I’m going to see what? Harry, are you telling me to go see this? You assumed the sale twice.
    It works in stores, sometimes.
