Best Grossing Musical of All Time At Aloha Theatre

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

When I asked my friends if they would like to see Mamma Mia! at the Aloha Theatre, they, unlike my husband, were enthusiastic. One of my friends' roommate is in the production, so they thought we could get free tickets. I don't know why they believed that idea but I was oppossed to the idea of waiting for free tickets. Why? You can get a ticket to the show at the Aloha Theatre for $10. (They surely do not charge enough.) Even near-the-stage seats are only $28 each.

So, I did the responsible thing, went online and bought the darn tickets. The best I could get was the 4th row center, but that's still excellent seats.  I knew better than to listen to them. Those particular friends rarely buy tickets for anything.

Unlike me who is often obsessed with the process. Because with just a little planning and ingenuity, you can buy front row seats for the same price as middle of the theatre, why not get good seats? Being close to the stage makes performances so much more personal and enjoyable.

Further, while this is not Broadway in New York nor Masonic on Nob Hill or even Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, same principles apply to obtaining good seats: book early, be decisive and have the seating chart pulled up on your screen.

The show SOLD OUT so fast. And it was completely amazing. You can read more about it in my personal blog today at this link: Mamma Mia! at the Aloha Theatre.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents I saw Mamma Mia decades ago on Broadway.... I can remember seeing my very first musical on Broadway, "Old Calcutta"... the first and longest running erotic musical on Broadway.... what a way to begin the series of seeing musicals on Broadway.... we were there many times a month...

Aloha Elizabeth- - -such a deal! For the price of a movie ticket (more or less) an opportunity to experience a live theater performance.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, for $25.00 a ticket, it was a great deal. My first Broadway show was Evita, one of the things I miss that NYC offers. I bet habanero chocolate covered mac nuts taste delicious, you'll get some next time.

Barbara Todaro Little is more exciting than a Broadway show, in my opinion. Nowadays, I mostly have to settle for what comes to San Francisco.

Michael Jacobs Yes, it's like do I buy a ticket at the Regal to see a movie or go to the Aloha Theatre? Easy answer to that one.

Hi Elizabeth- I love musicals but have not seen this one. Even though I'm not an avid Abba fan, I don't dislike the music. BTW- those prices didn't sound bad at all!

Kathy Streib I was never an Abba fan, either, but in retrospect, it's like Queen to me. I have a new-found appreciation as enough time has passed. :)

Good morning Elizabeth. I didn't know that mamma Mia was the highest grossing show od all time. Sounds like you made a good choice in buying quickly too.

Sheila Anderson It is the highest grossing show at the Aloha Theatre on Big Island, so not everywhere; but yes, very glad I grabbed the initiative and did not wait aroud for those supposed "free" tickets, LOL.

Hi Elizabeth... no doubt that was a fun musical...who didn't love the songs from ABBA? And why argue about a $10 ticket! With Broadway show prices in NYC, I get waiting on line for a half price ticket there, but $10 is probably still cheap at twice the price.

Endre Barath, Jr. Actually, I just saw it last night as an available option for premium movies on Spectrum, and was aghast they wanted $2.99 for a movie that was made in 2008. Just goes to show that the MM-2 and all the musical productions around the world has obviously re-stimulated interested.

Nina Hollander It is cheaper to go to the Aloha Theatre than it is to go to the movies at Regal Cinemax. And that is pretty wild. Over and over people have said how professional the production is, and how it does not come across as we tend to wrongly perceive "community" theatre.

Hi Elizabeth... I go to Regal with my senior discount, so it makes it cheaper than $10.... and on Tuesday afternoons it's a $4 ticket on the senior plan! Charlotte has a great community theatre so I never look down my nose at community theatre productions.
