Amandeep journeys to London's famous West End to go backstage at one of the world's most popular musicals: Mamma Mia!. She meets cast and crew, and finds out about the history of this long-running show.




I know "waterloo" but there's a lot of songs from them that I don't remember the title.
I haven't seen neither movie nor stage version of "mamma mia"

Musicals sometimes come to Turkey. But I haven't watched musical yet.

Mamma Mia is a love story set on an Greek island

I really cannot get the "sneak peak" expression, would you clarify this?

Hello Riham-Hendawi,

There's a definition and example of 'sneak peek' (notice the spelling) in our dictionary – just enter 'sneak peek' in the search box (in the grey area on the right side of this page) and you'll see them!

Hi ,

at the end of the Stephen's speech in the studio which explain about musical theater
he says " what does it take to put on musical show"
what is that supposed to mean?

in advance thank you very much

Hi saeedahwaz,

I can't find that sentence in the episode - could you say where exactly it occurs?

The sentence could be paraphrased as 'What do we (actors, the director, the producer etc) have to do in order for the show to take place?'

Hi mate,

thanks for getting back to me,

firstly I wanna inform you that I dont watch the episode via internet,I've got recorded file on my computer,therefore I can not specify the exact time in the internet version,

anyway thanks so much


In this movie, Amandeep says, "Ah this one is so me". I've searched 'so' in Cambridge Dictionaries and I'm not still clear. Could you please explain me about this?

Hello Aung Thet Naing,
This is an idiom and it means something like 'this one suits me so well' or 'this is so typical of me'.  In the video, Amandeep says it when she is looking at some clothes in the dressing room and she means that she has found one which is just her style.
I hope that clarifies it for you.
Best wishes,
