Calling all ABBA fans! Featuring the music of the seventies pop band, Abba, Mamma Mia uses the hits of the pop band to tell the story of a young woman getting married on a Greek Island who searches for the identity of her father. The production, which premiered on Broadway in November 2013, is one of the few Broadway shows where singing along is actually encouraged! If you’re looking for Mamma Mia! Tickets on Broadway, ScoreBig lets you save on every ticket, every day.
There’s singing, dancing, and an exciting worldwide search for a bride’s father – what more could you ask for in a Broadway show? The production follows the search for a long lost father of a bride who’s just days away from tying the knot. Her journey to locate her long lost parent is tied together by song after song from the pop band ABBA. Sophie, the daughter, invites the three men she thinks are most likely to be her father, but things really get interesting when Donna, the mother and ex-wife of one of these men, discovers what her daughter is up to.
Judy McLane, who played Tanya for years, was finally promoted to the lead where she now plays Donna, the independent mother who claims no need for rediscovering men who left her life. She’s previously starred in roles for both Kiss of the Spider Woman and Aspects of Love. Elena Ricardo takes the role of Sophie, as she races against the clock to have her father walk her down the aisle at her Greek wedding. Phyllidia Lloyd leads an incredibly talented cast and crew as Director.
Mamma Mia! is now playing on Broadway in the Broadhurst Theatre, located at 235 West 44th Street in midtown-Manhattan. The venue opened in September 1917 and sits back to back with the Plymouth Theatre. The 1,156 seat venue has recently been designated by the city of New York as a City Landmark.
2 hours, 30 minutes, with one intermission.
