Mamma Mia !

Mamma Mia !

Time Out

As the world goes mad for Abba once more, Time Out went behind the scenes at one of London’s most popular musicals: Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre.

We found out what it takes to be a leading lady, and how the crew store some of the most glittery and fabulous costumes. Ricky Butt, who plays dynamo Rosie, guided us around the set and her dressing room.
