The first UK tour of the worldwide smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! is coming to the Brighton Centre from next week: Tuesday 15th August to Sunday 3rd September
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 60 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages. MAMMA MIA! The Movie starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan, is the highest worldwide grossing live-action musical film of all time.
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.
Rebecca Esteves, Revenue and Commerce Manager at the Brighton Centre, said: “We’re really excited to be welcoming such an established show to the Brighton Centre. Having wowed crowds in the West End it’s a great honour to be among the venues that will be featuring it during its UK tour.
MAMMA MIA! is a tremendous feel good show with a fantastic soundtrack so we’re sure it will be as big a hit on the coast as it has been in the capital, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming the cast and crew to Brighton.”
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.
