I’m so excited! Next Saturday, my best girl Mo and I are headed down to Ft. Lauderdale to see the farewell tour of Mamma Mia at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Mr. R has graciously offered to drive us down, mainly because the thought of driving further south than West Palm Beach really makes me nervous. And he has no interest in going to the show. I can’t understand why, LOL!
I’m old enough to remember ABBA, although admittedly I was not that much of a fan back in the day. But when they put the songs into the context of a romance, I was hooked. I’ve seen the movie dozens of times and it just makes me happy. The songs are catchy and fun, and I’m all about the ‘happily ever after’ ending.
For tonight’s serenade, I’ve chosen one of my favorite sequences from the movie. It starts out silly, but toward the end, it’s a delightful street ballet that feels feminist and empowering. I just love it, and I can’t wait to see it live on stage.
And it seems fitting to post a song from Mamma Mia right here at Mother’s Day. Be sure to hug your loved ones tonight, especially your mom, who loves you more than she can say. I know, because I’m a mom, too. To all the moms, I wish you a very happy Mother’s Day.
And happy Saturday night!

Happy Mother’s Day, PS ❤️
Happy Mother’s Day to you, Miss Rita! Love and hugs!! 💖
It’s funny, I was just thinking of you this morning. I have an idea for a character and I want to pick your brain sometime.
It’s slim pickens, but you’re more that welcome to bring a shovel.
Hahaha! I’ll email you.
I’ve watched it at theatre 3 times now (all in different places) and I still want to go back for more! Absolutely amazing film, probably watched it a hundred times! So excited for Mamma Mia: Here we go again, which is coming out in 2018! Enjoy.
It just makes you feel so happy, doesn’t it? 😀
Oh yeah, I just get lost in the music and happiness 😀. I ❤️ your blog by the way!
Thanks so much! 🙂
