Director's Note

A Note From the Director Lyn Cramer

Over 60 million people all around the globe have fallen in love with the story and the music that makes Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good musical. The hits you know and love make this worldwide phenomenon, performed in 50 countries on 6 continents, the only contemporary musical translated into a dozen languages.

Mamma Mia! is based on the songs of ABBA, one of the most popular international pop groups of all time, topping the charts again and again in Europe, North and South America, and Australia in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. This musical was the brainchild of producer Judy Craymer (no relation). She met original group members and songwriters Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson in 1983 when they were working with Tim Rice on Chess. It was the song ‘The Winner Takes It All’ that suggested to her the theatrical potential of their pop songs.

Led by Broadway Rose Theatre veteran Peggy Taphorn, I am so happy to share this exuberant, talented, and fun loving cast with you. We have had such fun putting this show together and I must thank Sharon and Dan for inviting and supporting me, Alan for his musical genius, Jeff for his right and left brain, David and Bryan who gave us the best sandbox in which to play, and Allison for her delicious fashion sense. The entire creative team and crew should be applauded for their talent, time, help, and support with this huge undertaking.

A celebration of love, laughter, family, and friendship, Mamma Mia! is exactly what the world needs right now: an uplifting, fun-filled night at the theatre.
