GRAND RAPIDS — This was a community production? Tell that to the sold-out crowd that witnessed the opening shows of “Mamma Mia” at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre, which runs through March 17.

Given the talent level, crowd members may have felt like they had been transported to Midtown Manhattan. I've seen my share of community productions over the years and though many stand out with amazing talent, “Mamma Mia” exceeds all expectations.
