Why See Mamma Mia!?
Pioneer Theatre Company goes full ABBA!
Salt Lake City's Pioneer Theatre Company have announced their 2017/18 Broadway season with their own full-scale production of the smash-hit musical, Mamma Mia! This sunshine-filled show redefined the concept of the jukebox musical for the new century by telling the bittersweet, yet hilarious story of single mother Donna who is struggling to cope with her young daughter's impending marriage. This musical contains all of the band's most famous hits, including 'Super Trouper', 'Lay All Your Love On Me', 'Dancing Queen', 'Waterloo', plus less well-known but equally touching songs such as 'Slipping Through My Fingers' and 'Our Last Summer'.
Originally the brainchild of British producer Judy Cramer and playwright Catherine Johnson, the two were inspired to use the band's hits in a theatrical setting after meeting with two of the band's founding members, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. The show finally premiered in London's West End in 1999 and has spawned numerous international productions as well as inspiring the global smash hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried.
Opening night: 11 May 2018
Suitable for ages 11+
