Abba – The Mamma Mia! Story
ABBA are one of the most successful and hugely loved pop acts of all time. Between 1973-1982 Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Fältskog sold millions of records and topped the charts all around the world. Their timeless songs and unforgettable music are still as popular as ever.
The song (1975)
Mamma Mia is the opening song on ABBA’s third, self-titled album, and their first number one hit single following their Eurovision winner, Waterloo. It propelled them to superstardom, topping the charts across Europe and Australia, and was a sign of the phenomenal success to come.
The Musical (1999)
Producer Judy Craymer’s vision of a stage musical based on ABBA’s songs became a reality when MAMMA MIA! premiered in London’s West End with a script by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd. To date over 60 million people around the world have seen it.
The film (2008)
The film version of the musical starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Amanda Seyfried and Pierce Brosnan broke records at the box office and became the highest-grossing musical of all time. It was filmed on the idyllic island of Skopelos, which inspired the setting of Mamma Mia! The Party.

Since the world premiere in January 2016 in Stockholm, the original production of Mamma Mia! The Party was performing to full houses for over four years. Following its success, The Party opened at The O2, London in 2019 and at Rondo, Gothenburg in 2021 and more cities are coming up!
