Mamma Mia! - Celebrating 20 years together with love!
The hit musical that started it all celebrated 20 years in London last weekend with a special finale of 'Dancing Queen' that featured all the Donnas, Rosies, and Tanyas you could ever ask for, including both Siobhan McCarthy, who originated the role of Donna, and Jenny Galloway, who originated the role of Rosie.
Also joining in on the performance were Vivien Parry (Donna, 2004-06), Helen Hobson (Donna, 2006-07 & 2012-13), Lara Mulcahy (Rosie, 2004-06), Joanna Monro (Rosie, 2006-09 & 2011-13), Katy Secombe (Rosie, 2009-10), Jane Milligan (Rosie, 2013-14), Jacqueline Braun (Rosie, 2017-18), Kim Ismay (Tanya, 2003-06 & 2011-15), Suanne Braun (Tanya, 2007), Harriet Thorpe (Tanya, 2010-11), and Mazz Murray (Tanya, 2015-17).
The unforgettable rendition of 'Dancing Queen' also featured current stars Sara Poyzer (Donna, 2017-19 + international tour), Ricky Butt (Rosie, 2018-19), and Kate Graham (Tanya, 2017-19).
Produced by Judy Craymer, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Catherine Johnson, Mamma Mia! is the global smash-hit musical based around Swedish pop band ABBA's greatest hits by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. The two band members joined the ladies and cast on stage for the final curtain call. Björn graciously described Catherine, Judy, and Phyllida as 'three angels,' concluding the ethereal and dreamy night with a bang.
