The long-running Broadway hit Mamma Mia! will pack its bags and move from the Winter Garden Theatre to the Broadhurst later this year, producer Judy Craymer has announced. The move is expected to take place in late 2013.

"As we celebrate twelve years and 5000 performances in New York, I'm thrilled that the Shubert Organization has created this timely opportunity, which will allow us to present Mammia Mia! to delight audiences on Broadway for many years to come," Craymer said in a statement.

Inspired by the songs of Swedish pop band ABBA and telling the story of a young woman's quest to find her birth father in the days before her wedding, Mamma Mia! is Broadway's tenth-longest running show and has been seen by over 50 million people worldwide.

Philip J. Smith and Robert E. Wankel, joint CEOs of the Shubert Organization, said in a statement, "Mamma Mia! is one of the crown jewels of the musical theater, and we have so much respect for the way Judy has produced and maintained Mamma Mia! not only on Broadway, but in tours and other productions around the US and the world…We expect the production to keep playing at the Broadhurst Theatre for a very long time."

The Broadway company is currently led by Judy McLane as single mom Donna Sheridan; Christy Altomare as bride-to-be Sophie; Felicia Finley and Lauren Cohn as Donna's pals Tanya and Rosie; Aaron Lazar, Daniel Cooney, and Graham Rowat as Sophie's possible fathers; Zak Resnick as Sophie's fiancé, Sky; as well as Jacob Pinion, Thomasina E. Gross, Traci Victoria, Albert Guerzon, Deanna Aguinaga, Sydni Beaudoin, Brent Black, Natalie Bradshaw, Felicity Claire, Allyson Carr, Mark Dancewicz, Stacia Fernandez, Adrienne Jean Fisher, Tony Gonzalez, Bryan Scott Johnson, Corinne Melançon, Paul Heesang Miller, Christopher Hudson Myers, Jennifer Noth, Elena Ricardo, Gerard Salvador, Lauren Sambataro, Victor Wallace, and Blake Whyte.
