Haha yes indeed! It's certainly more of a pop musical than Jekyll... sometimes I don't understand why critics refer to Jekyll and Hyde as a pop style musical. I guess there are a few pop tunes like This Is The Moment and Someone Like You... but I wouldn't call songs like Alive, I Need To Know, Confrontation and Murder Murder pop style songs!Fantasma da Opera @ 28 Aug 2008, 3:05 PM wrote:And don't forget Mamma Mia! has the ABBA facytor.

But a few days ago I went to see Mamma Mia at the cinema which was literally song after song after song and all of my friends really enjoyed it, even ones who aren't big into musical theatre. But then again, Mamma Mia is a very different style from Jekyll and Hyde - Sunny Greek Islands with an upbeat jolly storyline vs. Foggy London with an intense depressing storyline.
