MAMMA MIA!


AMAZING!!!! I simply have no words to describe it!! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Yesterday I went to London thinking I was going to watch Dirty Dancing but being as good as I am following GPS I end lost and guess what in front on Novello Theatre where MAMMA MIA is being performed. Destiny or not I got there by 2.40 and they had a Thursday matinee starting at 3 and even better they still had tickets on the stalls. I got a 4th row amazing seat for half price! It was perfect!

My expectations were already super high not only because I had seen the movie that I love but also because it is such a known and well famed musical! But you know what? It totally went away above my expectations, it was simple magical, amazing, beautiful, ouw ouw ouw!!! Really good!!

I did love very much We Will Rock You which until now was my favorite west end musical but I have to admit that since yesterday I am not so sure anymore. I mean MAMMA MIA is something above spectacular! The cast energy, the songs, the scenes, the spirit and energy that we live during those almost 3 hours of performance is simple amazing and impossible to describe, please please make yourselves a favor and GO WATCH IT! Let them take your heart and soul to an unforgettable and beautiful experience! AMAZING!

My sister went to visit this week and we decided (as we always love to!) to go to London and watch a musical! At the beginning we thought about Dirty Dancing or Mamma Mia! but instead of buying the tickets online we decided to go and try to buy them there. We were told about houses that sell tickets right in Piccadilly but on our way from Euston Station to Oxford we passed by the Dominion Theatre, house of the marvelous show We Will Rock You and decide to stop and check for tickets. I had seen the show once before, it was the first musical I have ever seen and a show I will never forget! It was the day my passion for musicals started thanks this beautiful show. But since my sister hadn’t seen it yet and for me getting to watch it again was a dream we decided to get tickets! Lucky us, buying at the door in the day is so much cheaper! We go two tickets for the stalls right in the front with a very decent price of 30 pounds (original about 70!).

(not with the cast I saw but one of my favorite songs!)

As I had seen it before I had a really special and amazing memory of it which I was afraid was going to be destroyed watching a second time as my expectations were very on top! But NO, NO, NO! FABULOUS, MAGIC, BREATH TAKING, I totally LOVED IT!!!! To me, the best musical ever! Or at least, the best musical I have seen until today! Amazing cast, amazing work and amazing tribute to Queen! Very, very good! If you get the chance do watch it, you won’t regret it! It is competently spectacular!!!!

(here is a short concert with the cast I saw, amazing!!!)

a day in the beautiful city of London


Can’t get enough of London! Such an amazing, beautiful a full of art and live in every corner! For some reason it will always be such a special city for me and going there makes me truly happy every time I do so! If it was cheaper living there would be something I definitely wouldn’t mind. As for now my journey until London takes me about an hour and an half and it costs me £6 so can’t complain!

As always he city was full of lights, people, love and art! There is something to everyone and the perfume and energy of each street is extremely attractive and unique!

If you ever have the chance – visit London! And be ready because this amazing city will make you fall in love for its art, live, people, music, perfumes, lights, energy, for the whole city! 🙂

In every corner you will find a theatre and on its theatre a musical. I and my sister decided to watch Les Miserables. I watched the movie before and loved it so I couldn’t wait to watch the musical to which my expectations were quit high I shall say. Usually when you the expectations are put too high it’s hard to reach them. I have to say – they totally passed them! They went away over my expectations and the show was simply amazing and breathe taking! I can’t describe the emotions, smiles and tears the show gives you but I can tell you do go if you have the chance because it’s worth every penny you spend! Unforgettable, brilliant, amazing cast, amazing songs, amazing scenario! AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!

I love theatre, art and music and a musical is the perfect combination! It just feels my heart in a way I can’t explain and the chance to watch one is one of the things that can make me happier! Thank you to the brilliant cast who gave such an astonishing experience!
