Last Saturday saw an epic sing-off between the casts of Motown: The Musical and Mamma Mia! and we just can’t stop talking about it. Both great shows in their own right, Motown: The Musical is the new kid on the block, causing a storm in the West End after opening last month. Mamma Mia! is the established classic, running since 1999, it’s place in the hearts of theatre-lovers assured.

But they’re not the only great Jukebox Musicals in London at the moment! So we’ve started a debate that we have no hope of answering… With absolutely loads of fab London Musicals in the West End right now which one has the most great songs?



SuperBreaker Michael says: “I’m a life-long ABBA fan, and not in the least bit ashamed to admit it! I don’t think there’s one song in the Mamma Mia! list I don’t love – it has to be my favourite West End show for the music alone…”


SuperBreaker Catriona says: “Jersey Boys is one of those iconic musicals that everyone has to see once – and I haven’t seen it yet! It’s definitely top of my to-do list in London.”

mille-blogSuperBreaker Millie says: “I’d pick Beautiful. I love the music Carole King created, and it would be great to know a bit more about her life, and what inspired her to create such beautiful songs!”

sarah-blogSuperBreaker Sarah says: “Motown is the hottest new show in the West End right now – we’d be silly not to go see what all the fuss is about!”


It’s fair to say that we’re no closer to deciding… take a listen to our Jukebox Musicals playlist and see if you fare any better!
