Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘Mama Mia!’ enthusiastically played and received in Marinette

“The musical “Mama Mia!” tends perk up people’s attention. It’s probably the blend of ABBA’s catchy songs in a story set in an exotic, romantic place and the expectation of something festive. That the story is a tad earthy – dot, dot, dot – helps, too. And so it is that Theatre on the Bay is starting its 53rd season with a production of “Mama Mia!” that already has a history. Opening night Friday experienced a power outage from a storm, and (I overheard this) the cast finished off the final numbers with the help of the audience’s cell phone flashlights. No such hitch happened Saturday, and the performance breathed freely of fun, especially in the pumped-up finale.” See more via Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘Mama Mia!’ enthusiastically played and received in Marinette, wearegreenbay.com.
