Vienna will soon be hit by sensation of seventies pop music as a German version of the musical Mammia Mia! opens in the Raimund Theater this March.
The popular stage show has already been seen around the world by 54 million people after it first debuted in London in 1999, where it is still running to this day.
The song and dance show follows the story of a young girl who wants her dad to walk her down the aisle at her wedding. But unsure who her father is, she invites three of her mother’s unwitting ex-boyfriends to the event taking place on a small Greek island.
Built around the songs of Swedish band ABBA, the musical is usually a lively and fun event that features hits such as Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes it All, and Knowing me, Knowing you.
The show has already been translated into 14 languages and made into a successful feature film with Meryl Streep and Colin Firth but this is the first time it will appear in an Austrian theatre - the show will also have English text on display on the night, making it easy for non-German speakers to follow what’s going on.
The show will run from 19 March to the end of 2014. For more information and tickets visit www.wien-ticket.at
