Mamma Mia!, the global smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, celebrated its 10th Anniversary on Broadway yesterday. Last night, after the evening performance, the current Broadway cast members offered an outdoor performance on a stage outside the Winter Garden Theatre.
MAMMA MIA! opened at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre on October 18, 2001, and has become one of the most successful musicals of all time anywhere in the world. In September of this year, the popular musical became the 10th longest running show in Broadway history, surpassing Miss Saigon.
MAMMA MIA! global producer, Judy Craymersaid: "New York audiences embraced us when we arrived on Broadway and gave us the encouragement and support to not only send the show around the world, but to brave Hollywood and the movies. The global success would never have happened without the energy of New York City. Mamma Mia!'s 10th anniversary is like a homecoming and a very special moment for everyone involved in the show."
