London theatre show - Mamma Mia or Wicked?

9
Posted 5th Nov
Want to treat my Mum to a theatre show in London (never been before!) - stuck between Mamma Mia at the Novello Theatre or Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.

Has anyone been to these? Which theatre and which show would be better for a first time?

Thanks in advance!

Why not ask her which one she’d rather see (or are you wanting it to be a complete surprise)? I suppose a lot of it down to which she prefers, the music of ABBA or the story of The Wizard Of Oz.

Exactly that.. it's going to be a surprise. I don't think the story matters as she'll enjoy them both. I'm looking to find out which Theatre experience will be better.

I thought Wicked was excellent. Probably the best show I’ve seen (I’ve not seen that many to be fair ). I went to it for the wife and kids but was brilliant and enjoyed it far more than the wizard of oz. My wife is banging on about mamma Mia, but I can’t stand ABBA. I doubt you’ll be disappointed with either to be fair.

Factor in the cost though, Wicked can usually be found at a discounted rate for certain performances. Mamma Mia is always full price.
Theatre experience will be the same for both.

MAMMA MIA... definitely imo... But does she like ABBA?
I really enjoyed wicked over mamma Mia.
