A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.
Written by Catherine Johnson with Music and Lyrics by former ABBA band members Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! is a jukebox musical based on the songs of ABBA. The musical is full of women empowerment and a spirit which celebrates the theme of friendship and love, all of which are beautifully expressed from ABBA’s songs like “Super Trouper,” “Lay All Your Love on Me,” “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Thank You for the Music,” “Money, Money, Money,” “The Winner Takes It All,” “Voulez-Vous,” “SOS” and the title track. Over 60 million people have seen the show, which has grossed $2 billion worldwide since its 1999 debut.
