ABBAmania pays tribute to one of music’s most iconic groups when it takes the stage of bridgeport’s Downtown Cabaret Theatre
ABBAmania is rated the number one Abba tribute production in the world highlighted by authentic costumes, made by the seamstress from the hit Broadway musical, Mamma Mia, and incredible vocals by cast members Toby Boyle, Danny Gluckstein, Carly Broome and Katrina Wallis. The vocalists are accompanied by a live onstage band and the show features twenty-two Abba songs in its two-set show with costume changes, choreography, comedy and a great concert sound. Wherever the show plays it wins such critical praise as "Abba-solutely brilliant. The authenticity of the production has to be seen and heard to be believed, and the quality of the vocals and harmonies set new standards in London’s West End.” Whatsonstage.com (West End reviewer).
