Photo Coverage: MAMMA MIA! Celebrates Becoming 15th Longest-Running Show In Broadway History!

Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' global smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! officially became the 15th longest-running show in Broadway history on Saturday, June 27th when it played its 3,183 performance, surpassing the record previously held by the play Tobacco Road.

In celebration of the MAMMA MIA! landmark, 15 brides had the opportunity to win tickets to the record-breaking matinee performance for a Fab 15 bachelorette party, followed by a meet and greet with the Broadway stars, celebratory wedding cake and a champagne toast.

One lucky bride,  Lauren Hopkins Sheridan won a grand prize honeymoon trip to London to see MAMMA MIA! on the West End by catching a bouquet thrown by MAMMA MIA!'s Broadway bride-to-be Brandi Burkhardt.

MAMMA MIA! stars two-time Tony Award® nominee Carolee Carmello ("Donna Sheridan"), Judy McLane ("Tanya"), Gina Ferrall ("Rosie"), Brandi Burkhardt ("Sophie Sheridan"), Chris Peluso("Sky"), Sean Allan Krill ("Sam Carmichael"), Pearce Bunting ("Bill Austin") and Ben Livingston("Harry Bright").

The MAMMA MIA! company features Samantha Eggers, Amina Robinson, Raymond J. Lee, Brent Black, Timothy Booth, Allyson Carr, Lanene Charters, Meghan Dreyfuss, Matthew Farver, Lori Haley Fox, Heidi Godt, Jon-Erik Goldberg, Frankie James Grande, Corey Greenan, Bryan Scott Johnson, Monica Kapoor, Robin Levine, Corinne Melançon, Ian Paget, Courtney Reed, Ryan Sander, Collette Simmons, Traci Victoria and Leah Zepel.

Since opening at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway nearly eight years ago, MAMMA MIA! has surpassed the record-breaking runs of such landmark musicals as Hello, Dolly!; My Fair Lady; Annie; Man of La Mancha; Oklahoma! and the long-running revival of Cabaret.

Seen by over 40 million people around the world, MAMMA MIA!, is celebrating over 3,000 performances in its eighth smash hit year at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre and remains among Broadway's top selling musicals.

The original hugely successful West End production of MAMMA MIA! is celebrating 10 years and over 4,000 performances in London, an international tour has visited more than 40 foreign cities, and the blockbuster feature film adaptation, produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, is the most successful movie musical of all time grossing $600 million worldwide.

With a worldwide gross of over $2 Billion, MAMMA MIA! is acclaimed by the Associated Press as "quite simply, a phenomenon."
