MAMMA MIA! Returns to Adrienne Arsht Center, Now thru 10/13
Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' MAMMA MIA!, the smash-hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. Performances begin tonight, October 11 and run through Sunday, October 13, 2013. MAMMA MIA! is part of the Broadway in Miami 2013-2014 subscription season presented by Bank of America.
Seen by more than 50 million people around the world, MAMMA MIA! is celebrating over 4,000 performances in its 12th year on Broadway and remains one of Broadway's longest-running, top-selling musicals. The original West End production of MAMMA MIA! is now in its 13th year and has celebrated more than 5,000 performances in London and the international tour has visited more than 50 foreign cities and been seen by 4 million people. The blockbuster feature film adaptation of MAMMA MIA!, produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, is the most successful movie musical of all time grossing $600 million worldwide.
An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends-practical and no-nonsense Rosie and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya-from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.
On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.
Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA's songs from "Dancing Queen" and "S.O.S." to "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me," MAMMA MIA! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.
