The same night, the company welcomed new cast members including Lisa Brescia (Donna Sheridan), Liana Hunt (Sophie Sheridan) and Clark Thorell (Harry Bright). Company member Corey Greenan assumed the role of Sky. For the record, Mamma Mia! opened Oct. 18, 2001.
Here is a look at the cast, including new principals, lighting the disco ball:
Mamma Mia! features music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, a book by Catherine Johnson, direction by Phyllida Lloyd and choreography by Anthony Van Laast.
The musical was a hit in London, where it still plays, before arriving on Broadway. The production also spawned a hit film starring Oscar winner Meryl Streep.
