ABBA composers Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson were involved in the development of the original West End show right from the beginning. Producer Judy Craymer met songwriters of Anderssen and Ulvaeus in 1983, before finally commissioning Catherine Johnson to write the book, and Phyllida Lloyd to direct the first show.
