Mamma Mia

About Mamma Mia

The sensational feel-good musical MAMMA MIA! will return to Edinburgh Playhouse from Thursday 19 – Saturday 28 September, to open a UK Tour celebrating 20 years since MAMMA MIA! premiered in London in April 1999.

From West End to global phenomenon, MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with a sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads unfolding on a Greek island idyll.

To date, it has been seen by over 60 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages. In 2011 it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China. MAMMA MIA! became the 8th longest running show in Broadway history where it played a record-breaking run for 14 years. MAMMA MIA! continues to thrill audiences in London’s West End at the Novello Theatre where it will celebrate its 20th Anniversary on 6 April 2019.

Produced by Judy Craymer, MAMMA MIA! The Movie became the highest grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008. A second film, MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN, opened in July 2018 and is the most successful live musical movie sequel of all time.

Judy Craymer, Creator and Producer of MAMMA MIA! said: “We are really thrilled to be bringing MAMMA MIA! back to Edinburgh and especially as we celebrate 20 years since the musical first opened in London’s West End. It’s a very special year. We are really looking forward to welcoming new audiences to the show as well as all those who would love to see it again.”

Theatre Director at the Edinburgh Playhouse Colin Marr added: “We are absolutely delighted that MAMMA MIA! is returning to the Playhouse next year, is has to be one of Edinburgh’s favourite shows. We are even more delighted that we will launch the UK Tour on such an important milestone in the show’s history.”
