The New York production of the international hit musical Mamma Mia! recently celebrated its 13th anniversary on Broadway. We look back at the fabulous ladies to play the lead role of Donna Sheridan- with a special nod to current star (and former "Tanya") Judy McLane, who has been with Mamma for a decade and is the longest running principal cast member in the show's history.

"My time at Mamma Mia! over the past ten years has been nothing short of joyful," says McLane. "It has been an invaluable playground for my craft while both providing a unique environment to work with talented friends and colleagues - especially women - and a wonderful opportunity to be honored with the position of giving first time theater goers a positive Broadway experience."

"Above all, my extended run has allowed me to hone the skill of staying moment to moment in the same production, no matter how many performances I've played. I loved playing the glamorous Tanya, but it was fun to shed my high heels and find an earthier Donna Sheridan who gets to sing great songs!"

Now celebrating 13 years on Broadway, Mamma Mia! has been seen by over 50 million people worldwide and has grossed more than $2 billion at the box office.

With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! is written by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd. The production has choreography by Anthony Van Laast, production design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.

Show times at the Broadhurst are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 7 PM with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM.

The Broadhurst Theatre is located at 235 West 44th Street. For more information visit mammamianorthamerica.com.
