Opa! Mamma Mia! Takes OKC and Tulsa by storm
Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ Mamma Mia!, the smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to the Civic Center Music Hall and the Tulsa Preforming Arts Center for limited engagements.
An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she’s raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends - practical and no-nonsense Rosie and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya - from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.
On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.
Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs, from Dancing Queen and S.O.S. to Money, Money, Money and Take a Chance on Me, Mamma Mia! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.
Seen by over 54 million people around the world, Mamma Mia! is celebrating nearly six thousand performances on Broadway and is the eighth longest running show in Broadway history. The original West End production of Mamma Mia! is now in its seventeenth year and the international tour has visited more than 37 countries and been seen by over 4.8 million people. The blockbuster feature film adaptation of Mamma Mia! is the most successful movie musical of all time, grossing $600 million worldwide.
Seen in 49 productions in 17 different languages globally and with a worldwide gross of over $2 Billion, Mamma Mia! is acclaimed by the Associated Press as “quite simply, a phenomenon.”
