Photo Coverage: MAMMA MIA! Becomes Broadway's Ninth Longest-Running Show!

Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' global smash hit musical Mamma Mia! celebrated another milestone yesterday, Thursday, March 6, 2014, when it became the 9th longest-running show in Broadway history, a record previously held by the landmark musical Rent. Below, BroadwayWorld brings you coverage of the cast's curtain call, and after their bows!

MAMMA MIA! has also surpassed the record breaking runs of legendary musicals such as Miss Saigon; Fiddler on the Roof; Hello, Dolly!; Annie; 42nd Street, My Fair Lady and the original run of Cabaret.

Now celebrating 13 smash hit years and over 5,000 performances on Broadway at The Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street),Mamma Mia! is one of the most successful musicals of all time anywhere in the world and is one of only 5 musicals to have run for over 10 years on Broadway.

The movie adaptation of Mamma Mia! starring Meryl Streep is one of the most successful movie musicals of all time grossing over $600 million worldwide.

Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs and directed by Phyllida Lloyd, Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer's vision of writer Catherine Johnson's sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolding on a tiny Greek island. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings 3 men from her mother's past back to the island they had last visited 20 years ago. Songs including "Dancing Queen," "The Winner Takes It All," "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me" are all featured in this feel-good night of fun and laughter.
