Seen by more than 32 million people around the world, MAMMA MIA!, is celebrating 7 sold-out years at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre, and is currently playing record-breaking engagements in Las Vegas and on National Tour in the United States.  The original West End production has played nearly 4,000 performances, an international tour has played in more than 40 foreign cities, and this summer’s blockbuster feature film adaptation of MAMMA MIA!, produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, continues to smash box office records around the world.

Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolds 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 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.

Produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, the creative team responsible for bringing MAMMA MIA! to theatrical life includes some of the most gifted and celebrated talents of musical theatre and opera. With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, MAMMA MIA! is written by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd.
