Now in its 13th year on Broadway, Mamma Mia! will stage its 5,000th performance at its new home, the Broadhurst Theatre, this month. Mamma Mia is the 10th-longest-running show in Broadway history, and one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years on Broadway.
Mamma Mia! follows a daughter's quest to discover the true identity of her father on the eve of her wedding night. Infused with the timeless ABBA songbook, the production is directed by Phyllida Lloyd, and features a book by Catherine Johnson.
Judy McLane (Chess) currently leads the cast of Broadway's Mamma Mia!. Laurie Veldheer (Newsies), Felicia Finley (The Wedding Singer), Aaron Lazar (A Little Night Music), and Graham Rowat (Guys and Dolls) are also part of the cast.
