years of Mamma Mia!
celebrates twenty years in the West End this month! It’s already been two
decades since that 6th April 1999 when a new musical developed
around ABBA’s hits opened at the Prince Edward Theatre! The show was written by
Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida and immediately received a warm
welcome by London audiences. In 2004 the jukebox musical moved to the Prince of
Wales where it played until 2012 when it found a new home at the Novello
Theatre where it still plays now.
years, two movies and many international production afterwards, Mammia Mia!
keeps entertaining London audiences night after night!
The story is well-known. Donna runs a inn in a wonderful
Greek island. Her daughter Sophie is getting married and dreams to be escorted down
the aisle by her father. The only problem is that she doesn’t know who he is,
so she invites three of her mother’s former lovers and possible fathers to her
wedding… Mamma Mia! is a funny and feel-good tale of friendship, love and
memories told through twenty-two of ABBA’s timeless songs including Dancing
Queen, S.O.S., Voulez Vous, Knowing Me Knowing You, Thank You For The Music
and, of course, Mamma Mia.
