Judy Craymer’s inventive re-working of the hits of Swedish supergroup Abba, Mamma Mia! has to date been seen by 60 million people in 50 different productions in 16 different languages grossing more than $2 billion at the box office. In 2011 it became the first Western musical to be staged in Mandarin in China.

The show which originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre in 1999, is currently in the middle of its first UK tour. Mamma Mia! moved into the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004, before reopening in its new London venue, the Novello Theatre in 2012.

The London production of Mamma Mia! has been seen by nearly 8 million people. The show has celebrated over 7,500 performances in London and has broken box office records in all three of its London homes. A new booking period taking the show up until 3 March 2018 opened last month.

With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! is written by Catherine Johnson, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast.

The production is designed by Mark Thompson, with lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.

Mamma Mia! is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East & Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal.
