PHOTO CALL: Mamma Mia! Celebrates 11 Years on Broadway
By Matthew Blank
The Broadway production of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' international hit musical Mamma Mia!, which plays the Winter Garden Theatre, celebrated its 11th anniversary the evening of Oct. 18.
Mamma Mia! employs the hit songs of famed pop group ABBA to tell the story of Sophie Sheridan, a young girl who hopes to discover the identity of her father. On the eve of her wedding, she brings three men from her mother Donna's past back to the Greek island they visited over two decades ago.
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.
The Winter Garden Theatre is located in Manhattan at 1634 Broadway. For more information visit mamma-mia.com.
