This summer will be the last on Broadway for “Mamma Mia!,” the Abba-infused hit musical.
When the curtain comes down on Saturday, Sept. 5 at the Broadhurst, the show will have been performed 5.765 times on NYC’s Great White Way.
The Judy Craymer production has been replicated on stages the world over on every continent except Antarctica, reports Deadline Hollywood, and has grossed $2 billion.
“It’s an honour to be recognized as one of the most popular shows in Broadway history,” Craymer said of what is the eighth-longest running show on Broadway. “We’re looking forward to celebrating our last summer at the Broadhurst Theatre.”
It was also made into the feel-good 2008 film starring Meryl Streep who played the mother of a bride who is desperate to know which of the many lovers Streep’s character had is her dad.
The movie made $600 million.
Mamma Mia! indeed.
