Mamma Mia!

Novello Theatre, Aldwych, London

The hit feelgood musical Mamma Mia! continues to pull in the crowds more than 10 years after it first opened in London in 1999.

The back catalogue of ABBA, one of the most successful bands of all time, accompanies Catherine Johnson's story in which a young woman and her mother find themselves caught up in past events on the eve of the daughter's wedding day.

Set in Greece, Mamma Mia! centres on Sophie, who is about to be married to Sky. While her mother Donna prepares for the wedding at the guest house she runs, Sophie is preoccupied by the need to know the identity of her father. Behind her mother's back she has invited three possible suspects from her mother's free-loving past to the wedding. To Sophie's shock - and to Donna's surprise - they all turn up. But which one will take her down the aisle?

The much-loved musical features many of the popular hits by supergroup ABBA, including Does Your Mother Know?, Dancing Queen, Super Trouper, Take A Chance On Me and the title track, Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia! is directed by Phyllida Lloyd, whose many directorial stage credits include The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie at the National Theatre.

The same creative team made the show into a hugely successful film in 2008 starring Meryl Streep as Donna and Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard as the trio of potential dads.

This show is taking part in our annual discount ticket promotion Get Into London Theatre. Book tickets here.
