The musical, built around the work of pop sensations ABBA, originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6 April 1999, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004. MAMMA MIA! re-opened at the Novello Theatre in 2012, where it remains to this day.

MAMMA MIA! transports audience members to a Greek island, following the story of a mother, her daughter and three potential fathers.

Across the globe, the musical has been seen by over 65 million people, as well as turned into two record-breaking films.

Produced by Judy Craymer, MAMMA MIA! The Movie, starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan, became the highest-grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008. Follow up MAMMA MIA! Here We Go Again was released in cinemas in 2018, grossing almost $400 million worldwide.
