Canadian tribute group ABBAmania faithfully recreates the experience of seeing the Swedish superstars in person. Monica Tietz and Michelle Truman intertwine vocals, channeling Anna and Frida while Nick Pattison picks up the guitar to don the role of Björn’s avatar and Matt Whale tickles faux-ivory keys as keyboardist Benny’s doppelgänger and unwitting alibi for all future crimes. Authentic, custom-made costumes evoke the ‘70s with gusto, and dance moves drawn from ABBA’s own concerts mimic the originals right down to each batted eyelash. Hits such as “Mamma Mia,” “Fernando,” and “Dancing Queen” spring forth from the stage with all the energy of their first performance and none of that new song smell. Freshly minted assistant conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong leads the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra as they lend their soaring sound to the group’s anthemic melodies.
