WEST END’S ‘FRIDA’ PRESENTS AN AUTHENTIC ABBA REUNION
Created by the director, producer and choreographer of the award-winning ABBAMANIA musical and starring the original ‘Frida’ from the London West End cast, ABBA REUNION is coming to town.
Following a four-month run at The Strand Theatre and successful international tours selling out theatres, stadiums and concert halls, Vikki Holland-Bowyer has turned her attention to creating the ABBA REUNION stage show.
Vikki says she was spurred on by the four members of ABBA saying for years that they will never reform. “With this in mind,” she says, “the producers – The Reunion Group – decided they would give the fans the next best thing. . . and not just another ABBA tribute show.
“Abba Reunion gives ABBA fans the opportunity to get together and re-live the addictive ABBA phenomenon that swept the airwaves and discos during the Seventies and Eighties in a truly feel-good, party-style concert.”
From Mamma Mia to Dancing Queen, Abba Reunion commits to perform, from both an audio and visual perspective, all the hits with unrivalled authenticity – complete with a live band.
“There is a huge focus on the 1977 and 1979 live world tour footage plus the iconic pop videos that feature the famous flamboyant costumes and dance moves,” says Vikki.
“Visually, the performers are transformed into Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Anni- Frid (Frida).”
Each character has been studied by means of video clips of both live and studio performances to mimic the movements and mannerisms, enabling a true-to-life presentation.
“Meticulous scrutiny and strict vocal tutoring have been applied to recreate the voices of ABBA,” according to Vikki.
“The company’s sole aim is to leave each audience asking just one question – ‘did we just witness the real ABBA reunion’.”
