This hilarious and charming story unfolds on a Greek island, when, on the eve of her wedding, Sophie's search for her birth father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island. The story is woven around the timeless musical hits of ABBA, including notable songs such as "Dancing Queen," "Take a Chance on Me," "Super Trouper," and "The Winner Takes it All." Mamma Mia!, with music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and book by Catherine Johnson, ran on Broadway from 2001‐2015 with 5,773 performances, and was adapted into a movie in 2008.
