“Dancing Queen”. “The Winner Takes It All”. “S.O.S.”. I love them all. Last night, J & I attended opening night of Mamma Mia at the Saegner Theatre here in NOLA. Mamma Mia is one of my fave musicals. I loved the movie version too. I especially love how the songs from ABBA have been tied so smoothly into the story.
We started off with a couple cocktails and bites at Batch which is a bar located in the Hyatt French Quarter. It is a great spot to go to prior to the theatre as it is rarely over packed, and the walk to the theatre is only 3 blocks. BFFs Donald and Ellen joined us for the evening.
I had to do a double-take when I went to the restroom. This sign was outside one of the conference rooms. “Welcome Hookers”! LOL! As I peeked in, none of those ladies looked like “ladies of the night”. Most were busy constructing quilts.
The musical was really good. The cast was filled with great singers and actors.
Mamma Mia will be in New Orleans through Sunday, January 18. See it. You will not be disappointed.
We even ran into these two Ford cousins from Thibodaux.
Mamma Mia, y’all!
