Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' international hit musical Mamma Mia! will return to Las Vegas in spring 2014 with an open-ended run at The New Tropicana. The original Las Vegas production of Mamma Mia! ended its six-year run at the Mandalay Bay Theatre Jan. 4, 2009.
Mamma Mia! employs the hit songs of famed pop group ABBA to tell the story of Sophie Sheridan, a young girl who hopes to discover the identity of her father. On the eve of her wedding, she brings three men from her mother Donna's past back to the Greek island they visited over two decades ago.The show features music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, a book by Catherine Johnson, direction by Phyllida Lloyd and choreography by Anthony Van Laast. In New York, the musical plays the Winter Garden Theatre, which is located at 1634 Broadway.Mamma Mia! is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East & Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal. By now, the show has made three times the revenue of all the combined ABBA record sales.
