Mamma Mia! for Playhouse

Here we go again in 2019

The Abba juke-box musical Mamma Mia! is to open its 20th anniversary UK tour at the Edinburgh Playhouse in September 2019.

The two week run from 19 to 28 September 2019 will be the first date of a UK Tour celebrating 20 years since Mamma Mia! premiered in London in April 1999.

The show comes from Judy Craymer’s idea to use the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs to create a sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads – which unfolds on a Greek island idyll.

The Craymer-produced film version Mamma Mia! The Movie became the highest grossing live action musical film of all time upon its release in 2008. The sequal, Mamma Mia! Here We go Again, has become the most successful live musical movie sequel of all time since it opening in July 2018.

Craymer 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. It 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.”

Tickets for the show will go on sale to ATG Cardholders & MM Fans on Tuesday 27 November and on General Sale from Tuesday December 4 2018.
