Mamma Mia! Information
Somewhere in the crowd, there’s you. The international hit musical continues to delight audiences, and now you can be the dancing queen. Mamma Mia! tickets are available on London Theatre now.
This irresistibly funny ABBA musical comedy follows an original story of love, friendship and the search for identity accompanied by a score of some of the most recognisable and uplifting pop music ever written.
Set on a Greek island paradise, the Mamma Mia! musical tells the story of the newly engaged Sophie who is determined to find out the identity of her father and invite them to her wedding. Without telling her mother Donna, she writes to the three possible candidates and they all arrive just in time to see her walk down the aisle. The only question is, which one of the three very different men is it?
It took a long time for Mamma Mia! to come to life. Producer Judy Craymer spent a decade convincing Benny Anderson and Björn Ulvaeus to use their songs in a musical. Eventually, they were won over and Mamma Mia! was born. The original London production features an incredibly talented cast of performers and musicians who bring this colourful and exciting story to life.
Fans of the 2008 movie musical will also be delighted to see the show in its original form, so escape to this idyllic island paradise and enjoy the West End's greatest party. As one of the world's most successful and recognisable musical titles, it leaves audiences on their feet night after night.
