BWW TV: Watch That Scene! Go Inside Closing Night of MAMMA MIA!
An era on the Great White Way came to end on Saturday, September 12th, as Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' global smash hit musical Mamma Mia!, inspired by the songs of ABBA, concluded its historic, record-breaking run of 5,773 performances. Below, we take you inside closing night- from the curtain call speeches to the after party!
MAMMA MIA! is one of the most successful musicals of all time anywhere in the world, the eighth longest running show in Broadway history and one of only five current musicals to have run for more ten years on Broadway. The show recently passed the long runs of Rent, Miss Saigon, 42nd Street, Grease and Fiddler on the Roof, establishing the musical as a Broadway legend.
MAMMA MIA! opened at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre on October 18, 2001, following the meteoric success of the London premiere which debuted in 1999 and continues to play to packed houses at the The Novello Theatre in the West End.
