The set, designed by Mark Thompson, remains minimal throughout, however with the addition of the lighting by Howard Harrison, you feel instantly transported to a sun-soaked island and can almost feel the heat radiating off the stage.
Outstanding performances came from Richard Standing (Sam Carmichael), Neal Craig (Harry Bright) and Phil Corbitt (Bill Austin). Again, they each had their moment to shine and there was a clear comradery between the three as the story unfolds and they all realise their special connection.
Of course, the ABBA soundtrack of this musical is iconic and it’s clear to see that their music is still loved by many during the curtain call when everyone is up out of their seat, dancing and singing along with the cast. The costumes by Lucy Gaiger really do burst off the stage at this point, with platform heels and sparkly, vibrant jumpsuits worn by Donna, Tanya, Rosie and even the guys, Sam, Harry and Bill. Such a fantastic ending to a wonderful show!
