Mamma Mia! Celebrates 25th Anniversary With Fall Tour

Here we go again! In order to celebrate its 25th anniversary, “Mamma Mia!” will be launching a North American tour this fall. Here’s everything you need to know to get ready!

The Legacy of Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia focuses on an independent hotelier in the Greek islands as she prepares for her daughter’s wedding. Meanwhile, her daughter has preparations of her own. She has secretly invited three men from her mother’s past in hope of meeting her real father so that he can escort her down the aisle. 

Mamma Mia is the creation of Judy Craymer, a powerhouse producer and writer in the world of musical theatre. Since premiering in London in 1999 and on Broadway in 2001, the musical has become a Broadway staple, running for a record breaking 14 years. With 50 productions in 16 different languages, the show has had a profound impact on audiences around the world, becoming a cultural phenomenon.

The Hit Movie Adaptations

Craymer was also  involved with the movie adaptation starring Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Stellan Skarsgård. The jukebox movie musical had it all, gorgeous background, star studded cast, and ABBA. The Movie became the highest grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008. 

Second verse, same as the first! Craymer was also producing the popular sequel, which focused on diving more into Donna’s past with her beaus.  While her daughter Sophie, dreams of renovating a taverna in the present, she reunites once more with her mother’s old friends and boyfriends. All while on the beautiful and sunny  Greek island of Kalokairi.
