A Brief History
From West End production to global phenomenon, MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of turning ABBA’s timeless songs into story-telling magic. To date, the production has been seen by over 65 million people in 16 different languages across 50 productions. It has grossed an astonishing $2 billion at the box office. In 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China.
MAMMA MIA! originally opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 6 April 1999, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004. The musical re-opened at the Novello Theatre in 2012, where it recently celebrated its London 20th birthday on 6 April 2019. The London production of MAMMA MIA! has been seen by over 9 million people. It has played over 9000 performances and has broken box office records in all three of its London homes.
MAMMA MIA! is also known for being a box-office movie hit. Produced by Judy Craymer, MAMMA MIA! The Movie, starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan, is the highest-grossing live-action musical film of all time, whilst its sequel is the highest-earning musical sequel in history.
Thank You For The Music
- • MAMMA MIA! is the 5th longest-running musical in West End history.
- • 400 metres of Lycra are used to create the Super Trouper outfits. That’s a lot of Lyrca!
- • The musical has all of your favourite ABBA songs, including ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Mamma Mia!’, ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’ and so, so many more!
- • With all those ABBA tunes, it’s no wonder that Phyllida Lloyd directed both MAMMA MIA! the movie and the original West End and Broadway productions.
- • To date, there are nine cast recordings worldwide. All of ABBA’s hits can be listened to in German, Dutch, Spanish, Swedish, Korean, French, Japanese, and Chinese.
- • It took Judie Craymer 10 years to persuade Andersson and Ulvaeus to create the musical we know and love.
- • Craymer's was inspired by ‘The Winner Takes It All’ to create the musical, the song started the process of creating a strong female lead character…that character would eventually become Donna.

Interview with the cast of MAMMA MIA!
Residing in the gorgeous Greek island of Kalokairi 6 days a week, the cast members of MAMMA MIA! are no strangers to the sun. However, the blistering heat isn’t for everyone. Jake Bailey, who plays Pepper in the show much prefers a ‘British’ summer, ‘I can’t deal with the heat and sun!’, in fact everyone we spoke to in the cast; Gemma Goggin (Rosie), Mazz Murray (Donna) Miles Henderson (Sky) Meg Hateley (Sophie) all agreed that the predictably unpredictable British weather was best! So, it’s a good job, that their mythical paradise is located at the Novello Theatre in the heart of the West End, where a cooler climate is almost guaranteed!
Another thing that the tight-knit company all agree on? The importance of crisps at a picnic! When asked to describe their alfresco must-haves, a variety of ingredients were mentioned, from the highbrow (Gemma: strawberries, prosecco, salami…) to the, not quite Michelin star (Miles: cocktail sausages, tinnies...) the one thing that reunited all the dream feasts were crisps (or be it black truffle ones in Gemma’s case…)
Food and drink are an important aspect of their lives (and they certainly need it, leaping, dancing, and singing in the most energetic show in the West End eight times a week!) dark chocolate is an interval must-have for some, whilst twister ice lollies and ice creams are the only way to cool down for others. Meg can be seen drinking a large Diet Coke to quench her thirst, whilst her fictional mother, Mazz, prefers cool beer and larger (after work, of course!)
Just like Sophies three possible dads, there are a few differences between the cast members. Some have elaborate, and expertly timed pre-show rituals (Jake: I have a fair few, I always go say hello to wigs while I fill my bottle up while "Honey Honey" is on, me and the boy's fist bump before walking on, I’ll always do a clap and prayer before "Voulez Vous" and before "Does Your Mother Know" I will siren, pray and blow the nose because a runny nose in that number is the last thing anybody wants!) whilst others are a tad simpler (Miles: I get into costume.)
We caught up with the cast to discuss all things BBQS, on-stage mishaps, and, of course, MAMMA MIA!

The Dads Taking Centre Stage This Fathers Day
Dad, Pops, Pa, Designated Driver, whatever you call them, dads have a knack for providing love, guidance, and the occasional, or maybe more frequent, eye-roll-inducing ‘joke’. No matter the way they choose to communicate, they make it known that we’re cared for and seen.
In the world of theatre, a number of dads and father figures have taken centre stage with their quirks, wisdom, and unyielding dedication to their families. From the tender-hearted to the comically clueless, these characters have taught us valuable life lessons and helped us appreciate the leading man in our lives, whether they’re bonded by blood, by love, or by memories. So this Fathers’ Day, we have rounded up some of the best dads and father figures that call the West End stage their home!
