Since premiering in London in 1999, the irresistible feelgood musical has captured the hearts of millions around the globe. The sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads on a Greek island idyll, all unfolding to the magic of ABBA’s timeless pop masterpieces, has now been seen live on stage by 65 million people across the world, and turned into two record-breaking movies – Mamma Mia! The Movie and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
To date, Mamma Mia! has been seen in 50 productions in 16 different languages grossing more than $4 billion at the box office. In 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China. Mamma Mia! is also currently playing in a German-language tour in Germany, a Dutch-language production in Utrecht, a Korean-language production in Seoul and a Mandarin-language production in China. The full scale production of Mamma Mia! continues to perform on The Royal Caribbean Ship ‘Allure of The Seas’. Upcoming productions include a UK and International Tour and a Danish-language tour of Denmark.
Mamma Mia! originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6 April 1999, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004, and then to the Novello Theatre in 2012. The London production of Mamma Mia! has been seen by over 9 million people, played over 8,500 performances and has broken box office records in all three of its London homes.
Produced by Judy Craymer, Mamma Mia! The Movie became the highest grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008. A second film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, opened in July 2018 and is the most successful live musical movie sequel of all time.
