MAMMA MIA! Returns to Detroit For One Week Only! {press release}

I've always wanted to see the stage production of MAMMA MIA! I'm familiar with the storyline and, of course, the music but I'm sure it's a show that must be seen on stage to fully appreciate it.

Thankfully, I'll get a chance to see it when the tour stops in Detroit from April 13th-17th at the Fisher Theatre.  And you can see it too! Tickets go on sale January 29th.

Please see the included Press Release for more information.


THE GLOBAL SMASH HIT WILL RETURN TO DETROIT
FOR ONE WEEK ONLY!

The Fisher Theatre
April 13–17, 2011

Tickets on Sale January 29!

DETROIT, MI, January 19, 2011 -- Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ MAMMA MIA!, the smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to Detroit’s Fisher Theatre from April 13-17, 2011. Tickets for the Detroit performance of MAMMA MIA! will go on sale Saturday, January 29, 2011 at the Fisher Theatre box office, all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 1-800-982-2787, and online atwww.ticketmaster.com or www.broadwayindetroit.com.

Seen by over 45 million people around the world, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ global smash hit musical MAMMA MIA!, is celebrating over 3,800 performances in its tenth smash hit year at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre and remains among Broadway’s top  selling musicals. The current North American Tour has played over 3,000 performances in over 130 cities with 125 repeat visits. The original West End production of MAMMA MIA! is now in its twelfth year and has celebrated over 4,800 performances in London and the international tour has visited more than 50 foreign cities and been seen by 3.6 million people. The blockbuster feature film adaptation of MAMMA MIA!, produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, is the most successful movie musical of all time grossing $600 million worldwide.

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she’s raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends—practical and no-nonsense Rosie and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya - from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” MAMMA MIA! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

Produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, the creative team responsible for bringing MAMMA MIA! to theatrical life includes some of the most gifted and celebrated talents of musical theatre and opera.
