Mamma Mia! Omaha Tickets
Mamma Mia! tells the story of Sophie, a 20 year old girl about to get married to fiancé Skye on a Greek island. Her single mother, Donna, receives guests, but Sophie is perplexed over the identity of her real father. After perusing through three of her mother’s former flings, she secretly invites them all, trusting that she’d know the one when she’d see him. Cue utter confusion after she & Skye agree just before the vows that they don’t want to get married, setting the stage for one of Donna’s former lovers to claim Donna’s love & reignite wedding festivities.
West End’s Prince Edward Theater first featured Mamma Mia!’s premier in April 1999. Catherine Johnson, of Rag Doll fame, contributes the lyrics. Bjorn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson, of the original ABBA quartet, contribute music & lyrics.
Dancing Queen" & "Super Trouper" are just two of ABBA’s countless classics that make Mamma Mia! a roaring success. Costume design & acting is spot on too. It has been graced with five Tony nominations & an Olivier Award.
Mamma Mia!’s light-hearted content is a winner, aided by quality music that has sent fans rushing for Mamma Mia Omaha tickets.
