The shirts, which first went on sale in Oct. 2002, benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Craymer recently created a new shirt in celebration of Mamma Mia!'s upcoming fifth Broadway anniversary on Oct. 18.

In a statement producer Craymer said, "As we celebrate Mamma Mia!'s fifth anniversary on Broadway, I am thrilled to introduce a new design of the T-shirt and hope that it will continue to raise money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Mamma Mia! is a female-focused story. It's been written, produced and directed by three women and women are also at the heart of the story. Breast cancer is predominantly a female health issue, although it directly affects both men and women in so many ways. We felt that The Breast Cancer Research Foundation was a deserving and relevant cause, and we're delighted to be able to help in any way we can."

Over $400,000 has been donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through the sale of more than 25,000 shirts.

The T-shirts are available at the merchandise stations of all theatres that present Mamma Mia!; they are also on sale at www.mamma-mia.com.
