The Worldwide smash hit musical Mamma Mia will be coming to Cardiff’s New Theatre.
The sensational feel-good musical MAMMA MIA! will come to the New Theatre for a 3 week run from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 27th February 2020 as part of a UK & International Tour celebrating 20 years since MAMMA MIA! premiered in London in April 1999.
From West End to global phenomenon, MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with a sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads unfolding on a Greek island idyll.
Todate, it has been seen by over 65 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages. In 2011 it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China. MAMMA MIA! became the 8th longest running show in Broadway history where it played a record-breaking run for 14 years. MAMMA MIA! continues to thrill audiences in London’s West End at the Novello Theatre where it celebrated its 20th Anniversary on 6 April 2019.
Produced by Judy Craymer, MAMMA MIA! The Movie became the highest grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008. A second film, MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN, opened in July 2018 and is the most successful live musical movie sequel of all time.
Judy Craymer, Creator and Producer of MAMMA MIA!, said:
MAMMA MIA! Back to Cardiff as part of the UK and International Tour celebrating 20 years since the show first opening in London’s West End. It is always a joy to share the feel-good story of MAMMA MIA! and the wonderful music of ABBA, and we can’t wait to see audiences new and old dancing down the aisles!’
