Mamma Mia! - 2001 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

One of the world's most popular musicals, MAMMA MIA! has audiences dancing in the aisles at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre. Seen by over 40 million people around the world, MAMMA MIA!, is celebrating over 3,400 performances in its ninth smash hit year at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre and remains one of Broadway's top selling musicals. The current North American Tour has played over 3,000 performances in over 130 cities with 125 repeat visits.

The original West End production of MAMMA MIA! is celebrating 10 years and over 4,000 performances in London, an international tour has visited more than 40 foreign cities, and the blockbuster feature film adaptation is the most successful movie musical of all time grossing over $600 million worldwide.

Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs, MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer's vision of staging writer Catherine Johnson's sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolding on a tiny Greek island. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they had 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 musical.

PREVIEW Mamma Mia! - 2001 - Broadway

Mom Had a Trio (And a Band, Too)
8 / 10

For if you take apart 'Mamma, Mia!' ingredient by ingredient, you can only wince. It has a sitcom script about generations in conflict that might as well be called 'My Three Dads.' The matching acting, perky and italicized, often brings to mind the house style of 'The Brady Bunch.' The choreography is mostly stuff you could try, accident-free, in your own backyard. And the score consists entirely of songs made famous in the disco era by the Swedish pop group Abba, music that people seldom admit to having danced to, much less sung in their showers. Yet these elements have been combined, with alchemical magic, into the theatrical equivalent of comfort food.

Mamma Mia
8 / 10

Mamma Mia defies scrutiny. If you attempt to analyze this mega hit from London, it'll fall apart. It's hokey, implausible and silly. The Abba music, despite its popularity, is mediocre and many are likely to think: What's the big deal?... Audiences should come prepared to check their cynicism at the door and become dancing queens, boogying giddily into the night.
