Mamma Mia! will reopen in London’s West End in August.
The smash hit musical recently celebrated its 20th anniversary at the Novello Theatre having first premiered in 1999.
Now the show has announced plans to reopen after the pandemic on 25 August, currently booking through to 2 April 2022.
Set on a Greek island paradise, Mamma Mia! cleverly tells a story of love, friendship and identity through the timeless songs of ABBA. Sophie’s quest to discover the father she’s never known brings her mother face to face with three men from her distant romantic past on the eve of a wedding they’ll never forget!
The musical features a book by Catherine Johnson with direction by Phyllida Lloyd and choreography from Anthony Van Laast.
