Mamma Mia Houston TicketsA young girl, a search and a wedding — these are the perfect ingredients to use Abba’s music in a theater production. Mamma Mia The Musical makes use of the Swedish pop group as the backdrop in protagonist Sophie’s search for her biological father before she ties the knot. Her only wish — for her father to walk her down the aisle. And just like the pop group’s unpredictable and lively tunes, Sophie’s search led her to three possible candidates as her father. The musical was developed with Abba members and songwriters Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. As the music for the production was being developed, producer Judy Craymer tapped Catherine Johnson to come up with its book while Anthony Van Laast was asked to do the choreography. Phyllida Lloyd directed the opening night. The show opened on at the Prince Edward Theatre in London’s West End on April 6, 1999.
From Sweden with LoveSweden’s Abba captured the world starting in 1974 with the release of their single "Waterloo." But it was while working with legendary theater personality Tim Rice that Mamma Mia The Musical producer Craymer taught of working with the group and adapting their music into a play. She confessed that the Ulvaeus and Andersson were a bit reluctant about allowing their music to be in a musical at first. However, she was able to slowly convince them after saying that it would be used in an original book and not as a tribute show for the Swedish band. She added that aside from convincing the group, she was also occupied on whether the show will be a success as it is helmed by three women — her as a producer, Johnson as writer and Lloyd as director. It did go on to be a success. A great gamble for Craymer and Ulvaeus and Andersson. Mamma Mia The Musical has since been staged in various parts of the world since 1999. It ran in Belgium, United Arab Emirates and Japan and was even performed in a non-English production in Hamburg, Germany in 2002.
