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!
