What can be said about a Broadway musical that is celebrating its 10th year of international success, has been performed 4,000 times in 40 countries, and ehas ven been translated into Chinese?
Yet Mamma Mia! seems to have withstood the test of time. No doubt the music of 1970s pop music group ABBA has helped propel the musical to stardom. But Mamma Mia! is no tribute show to the Swedish band that wrote and performed the chart-stopping songs.
The plot revolves around a daughter who, while preparing for her wedding, tries to discover the identity of her father. Three men present themselves as possibilities. Will anyone figure out who is the girl’s real father?
I admit I’ve not watched the DVD of Mamma Mia! starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth (now that I know Colin Firth is in it, I’m checking it out tomorrow!), but I know that the stage performance offers high-energy, beloved songs, and tongue-in-cheek humor!
I am so excited that the Broadway troupe for Mamma Mia! is coming to the Embassy Theatre on Sunday, May 20, at 2:00pm. I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon with girlfriends or family members. Oh yes, I can – you can win a free getaway weekend to Fort Wayne that includes two tickets to the show. All you have to do is register here!
