Mamma Mia! is packing up its bags and moving the Greek Isles to the Broadhurst Theatre! After a 12-year run at the Winter Garden Theatre, which will now play host to Rocky, the ABBA-tastic jukebox musical opens at its new venue on November 2. Mamma Mia! currently stars Judy McLane as Donna and Laurie Veldheer as Sophie.
The long-running tuner tells the story of Sophie Sheridan (Veldeer), a young bride who invites three possible dads to walk her down the aisle at her wedding—unbeknownst to her mother, Donna (McLane). Directed by Phyllida Lloyd, Mamma Mia! opened October 18, 2001 on Broadway. The show features music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus and a book by Catherine Johnson.
In addition to McLane and Veldheer, Mamma Mia! stars Aaron Lazar as Sam Carmichael, Felicia Finley as Tanya, Zak Resnick as Sky, Lauren Cohn as Rosie, Graham Rowat as Harry Bright, Daniel Cooney as Bill Austin, Jacob Pinion as Pepper, Thomasina E. Gross as Lisa, Traci Victoria as Ali and Albert Guerzon as Eddie. The production also features Deanna Aguinaga, Sydni Beaudoin, Timothy Booth, Natalie Bradshaw, Felicity Claire, Allyson Carr, Mark Dancewicz, Stacia Fernandez, Adrienne Jean Fisher, Jon-Erik Goldberg, Tony Gonzalez, John Hemphill, Bryan Scott Johnson, Paul Heesang Miller, Christopher Hudson Myers, Corinne Melancon, Jennifer Noth, Elena Ricardo, Gerard Salvador, Lauren Sambataro, Leah Zepel and Blake Whyte.
