Why Watch MAMMA MIA!
From West End to global phenomenon, Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise. To date, it has been seen by over 65 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages grossing more than $2 billion at the box office. In 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China. Mamma Mia! is currently on its first-ever UK Tour, receiving great critical and public acclaim.
Mamma Mia! originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6 April 1999, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004. The musical re-opened at the Novello Theatre in 2012, where it recently celebrated its London 20th birthday on 6 April 2019. The London production of Mamma Mia! has been seen by over 9 million people, played over 8,500 performances and has broken box office records in all three of its London homes.
MAMMA MIA! is a light-hearted yet emotional story of a girl, Sophie, and her quest to find her father. As her mother Donna, an independent hotelier in the Greek Islands, prepares for her wedding, Sophie comes up with a plan. With her wedding day approaching fast and no father to walk her down the aisle, Sophie invites three men from her mother’s past to find out which one of them is her real father. Will Sophie find out in time before the big day?
