Audiences were instantly captivated by this feel-good musical with its infectious ABBA score when it opened on Broadway in 2001. It since has gone on to become an international sensation, with stage productions playing all over the world.
In the summer of 2008, the film version opened on movie screens around the world, and like the stage musical, it too became an instant hit and an international sensation.
Mamma Mia! tells the story of Sophie Sheridan, a young woman on the brink of marriage. Brought up by her single mother, Donna, on a remote Greek island, Sophie longs to know the identity of her father as she thinks it will complete her family (and, by extension, her world). When she stumbles upon her mum's old diary, Sophie finds three men who could possibly be her dad... and invites all three to her wedding without Donna's knowledge. As you can expect, all hell (and lots of music, dancing and magic) breaks loose when the three men arrive at Donna's doorstep.
