Mamma Mia! on Broadway: Show information

Broadhurst Theatre. Book by Catherine Johnson. Music and Lyrics by Björn Ulvaeus. Music and Lyrics by Benny Andersson. Dir. Phyllida Lloyd. With Judy McLane and Laurie Veldheer. 2hrs 30mins. One intermission.


Mamma mia, here it goes again. And again and again. New York theater has seen a lot of jukebox musicals blip in and out of existence like mayflies in springtime, but Mamma Mia! is one Broadway show that endures. Chalk it up to the combination of ABBA’s perennially infectious songs—the sugar rush that’s lasted four decades and counting—and book writer Catherine Johnson’s easily digestible, very silly rom-com plot: On the eve of her wedding, 20-year-old Sophie, who has spent her life on a Greek isle with her sassy, taverna-running mom, concocts a ridiculous plan to find out the identity of the father she’s never met. Almost two dozen ABBA songs get squeezed into this shiny bell-bottomed catsuit of a musical, from the big hits (“Dancing Queen,” “Take a Chance on Me”) to the deep cuts (“Under Attack,” “Our Last Summer”). For every boomer lady who secretly sings “The Winner Takes It All” into her hairbrush and longs for the days of unironic hair feathering, Mamma Mia! is a nostalgic Broadway ticket that’s hard to resist.—Jenna Scherer
