MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise. To date, it has been seen by more than 54 million people in 49 productions in 14 different languages. MAMMA MIA! The Movie is the highest worldwide grossing live-action musical film of all time and one in four households in the UK has the DVD, which is now Amazon UK’s biggest selling DVD ever.
From West End to global phenomenon, the London production of MAMMA MIA! has now been seen by more than 10% of the entire UK population. It is one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years both on Broadway and in the West End, and in 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China.
With music & 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 & Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material & arrangements by Martin Koch.
Cast for the UK tour will be announced in due course.
Creator and Producer Judy Craymer said: “It’s fabulous that the first ever UK tour of MAMMA MIA! will debut in Bristol. It’s an exciting new journey for the show with its celebration of much-loved music and feel-good story. We’re looking forward to welcoming new audiences, as well as those who would love to see it again, to come and join us for the party.”
Writer Catherine Johnson said: “I’m delighted that The Bristol Hippodrome will be the first stop on this exciting new UK tour of MAMMA MIA! It’s especially meaningful to me that we will be starting in my home city. I hope Bristol audiences will embrace the show again and have a great time.”
Steve Jones, Marketing Manager of The Bristol Hippodrome said “We are thrilled to be welcoming MAMMA MIA! back to The Bristol Hippodrome having been visited by the International Tour in 2007. The show was a feel-good hit with audiences and we’re hugely proud to be the inaugural venue on MAMMA MIA’s exciting new UK tour.”
The MAMMA MIA! UK Tour is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East & Björn Ulvaeus for
