Oh Mama Mia!
First, let me say that I have never been a huge fan of the music of the group ABBA. And though I am a huge fan of Broadway musicals, I could never muster enough enthusiasm to see the show Mama Mia!. Wedding angst for 3 hours .... no thanks. Then Monday, I heard one of my favorite morning radio show hosts, gush about a new trailer for Mama Mia!, the movie. My first reaction was a hard core eye roll, and *ugh* (out loud). So imagine my surprise, when I saw a promotional trailer for the film on TV last night, and was thoroughly enchanted! The movie looks like a lot of fun, with an interesting cast. My pal Meryl leading the charge! I just may give the Broadway version a look before this film opens in July. Something to look forward to!
