Manila, Philippines--After nearly 20 years since the show premiered in London's West End in 1999, MAMMA MIA!, the "Mother of All Jukebox Musicals," triumphantly opens (and remains a crowd-pleaser) at The Theatre at Solaire in Paranaque City. The show, in a limited engagement, runs now through October 21, 2018.
Prior to the production's first official bows, the members of the cast performed excerpts from the finale, which include two of ABBA's greatest hits "Mamma Mia" and "Dancing Queen." (Watch the videos below!)
