As Mamma Mia! draws toward the end of its historic run on Broadway, we look back 14 years to opening night on Oct. 18, 2001. Happy trails, Super Troupers!
Look Back at the Opening Night of Mamma Mia! on Broadway
After almost 14 years, Mamma Mia! is closing up shop on Broadway Sept 12. Back when Mamma Mia! opened, it was one month after the 9/11 attacks, and the infectious joy and fun on stage at the Winter Garden Theatre gave this city exactly what it needed — an escape.
The Post reports that cast members from all 14 years of its lengthy run will make an appearance in the final show. A block party in front of the Broadhurst will also be held.
