Mamma Mia!

You can dance, you can jive, you can…you get the picture

Dust off your dancing platform shoes. The ‘70s are back with Catherine Johnson’s hugely successful Mamma Mia!The Broadway mega-hit, coming to Houston via Broadway Across America, weaves a story about a single mom with a wild past around the popular tunes created by ABBA, the pop icons from Sweden who made disco divine. The story takes place on a fictional Greek island, where Donna and her daughter Sophie are getting ready for the girl’s pending nuptials. Trouble is, young Sophie has no idea who will walk her down the aisle, as Donna’s never told the girl who her father is. When Sophie finds her mother’s old diary and invites the three men mentioned in it to her wedding as possible dads, Donna’s life changes forever. Stir in tunes like “Dancing Queen” and “The Winner Takes It All,” and the feel-good story will bring the audience to its feet in waves of happy nostalgia.
