MAMMA MIA is a jukebox musical staged as a romantic comedy, contrasting the dreams and aspirations of a 70s girl and a 90s girl. Sun, sea, sex and subterfuge are the backdrop to this tale of the women who wanted to have it all, and the girls who want happy ever after. But has anyone asked what the men want?
