    MAMMA MIA is a musical based on the songs of ABBA. Music and lyrics composed and written by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. Principal cast: Lisa Stokke (Sophie Sheridan); Eliza Lumley (Ali); Melissa Gibson (Lisa); Siobhan McCarthy (Donna Sheridan); Louise Plowright (Tanya); Jenny Galloway (Rosie); Andrew Langtree (Sky); Neal Wright (Pepper); Nigel Harman (Eddie); Paul Clarkson (Harry Bright); Nicolas Colicos (Bill Austin); Hilton McRae (Sam Carmichael); Tom Magdich (Father Alexandrios). MAMMA MIA! was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. Culled from the smash hit London, Toronto, and Broadway musical of the same name, MAMMA MIA is a treasure trove of ABBA hits penned by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, who are also the guiding force behind said production. The theatrical versions of these classics have been reworked somewhat, and the album also includes some pieces not from the original ABBA catalog, but in the main this is a fun workout from the oeuvre of Sweden's biggest export since Volvo cars. While It's a little disorienting to hear familiar songs like these in unfamiliar orchestral settings, the material is strong enough to wIt'stand the reworking it undergoes here. The result is an enjoyable memento of what should prove to be a long-running and popular production.
