Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” MAMMA MIA! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.
“Mamma Mia! is the ultimate feel good show that audiences continue to enjoy. This musical comedy is quite clever in its script – and the way the various ABBA songs are woven into the plot line,” said Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC’s president and chief executive officer. “It’s fun to revisit so many of the unforgettable songs of ABBA that cross generations. They literally have everyone on their feet by the end of the show.”
MAMMA MIA! is one of the most successful musicals of all time, the eighth longest-running show in Broadway history, and one of only five current musicals to have run for more than 10 years on Broadway. The West End production is now in its 17th year. The international tour has visited more than 81 foreign cities in 37 countries.
The original production of MAMMA MIA! was 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. MAMMA MIA! has choreography by Anthony Van Laast, production design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.
MAMMA MIA! is produced by Work Light Productions, whose other touring productions include Rent 20th Anniversary Tour, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, Vocalosity, and Crazy For You.
