Mamma Mia is the Abba musical. Mamma Mia was written by Catherine Johnson, and original band members, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, were involved in the development.
The story begins with Sophie Sheridan sending invitations to her wedding to her three potential fathers, which are supposed to be from her mother, Donna. All three of them come to the Greek island. By the end of the night, all of them believe they are Sophie’s father and are giving her away the following day at her wedding.
In the meantime, Donna is losing her mind because she doesn’t know why Sophie’s dads are on the island or what their intentions are. She never told them about Sophie and indeed she doesn’t know which of them is her daughter’s father. Donna confides in her close friends, Tanya and Rosie.
The plot unravels into a very surprising yet happy ending. It is a fun story with fantastic music from Abba, including ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Take A Chance on Me’, ‘Waterloo’ and many more.
