After 14 years and nearly 6,000 performances on Broadway, the worldwide megahit Mamma Mia! sails into The Muny like a breath of fresh island air. Set on the Greek island of Kalokairi, Sophie, a 20-year-old bride-to-be, is on the search for her father. After reading her mother's diary, she discovers there are three potential suitors. Unbeknownst to her mother, Donna, Sophie invites each of them to the island in hopes of having one of them walk her down the aisle. As the big day draws near, emotions run high, surprises abound and old flames burn just as strong as new. This feel-good show, packed with 22 ABBA hits, will have Muny audiences leaving singing "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" more!
