It has been playing on Broadway since 2001, has toured more than fifty countries across six continents, been translated into 22 different languages, and seen by an awe-inspiring 60 million people... so far!
What's the story of Mamma Mia?
The action unfolds on a Greek island where Sophie is getting married. Sophie is determined to track down her long-lost father and secretly tries to find the truth by delving into her mum Donna's past. When Sophie invites three men to the island in an effort to pin down which one her father is, and all three turn up on the eve of the wedding, Donna is forced – at last - to face her past. Which man is Sophie's dad? Who will walk her down the aisle? And will Donna fall back in love with any of her exes?
