MAMMA MIA! is described as “the ultimate feel-good musical.”
Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision uses ABBA’s timeless songs to help tell an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise.
To date, it has been seen by more than 54 million people in 39 productions in 14 different languages grossing more than $2 billion at the box office.
MAMMA MIA! The Movie is the highest worldwide grossing live-action musical film and it is estimated that one in four households in the UK has the DVD.
It is one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years both on Broadway and in the West End, and in 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China.
