"Mamma Mia!" delays transfer to Prince of Wales by one week to 3 June 2004

Mamma Mia! has delayed its transfer from the Prince Edward Theatre to the Prince of Wales Theatre by one week. The show was to move into the Prince of Wales on 28 May, but will now transfer on 3 June , with a new Press Night on 9 June 2004.

MAMMA MIA! will now play an extra seven performances at the Prince Edward Theatre from Monday 24 May until Saturday 29 May. Tickets for these new performances have just been released.

The delay has been caused by the fact that the noise generated by drilling work makes continued rehearsals in the building impossible. It was therefore decided, to give the builders an extra week to finish the job before handing the theatre back to the cast and crew of Mamma Mia!

Based on the songs of ABBA, Mamma Mia! opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6th April 1999, following previews from 23rd March 99, to rave reviews and smash business.

The show has music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus.

This original musical, which is a story of a mother and daughter set on the eve of the daughter's wedding, has a book by Catherine Johnson.

It is designed by Mark Thompson, with lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce & Bobby Aitken and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.

It is choreographed by Anthony Van Laast and directed by Phyllida Lloyd.

Looking for the best seats...
