Signature Theatre announced today that it will produce Mamma Mia! this summer at The Wharf, Washington, DC’s newest concert venue.
Mamma Mia! will run for two weeks from June 25 to July 5, 2020.
With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and book by Catherine Johnson, Mamma Mia! will be directed by Signature Theatre’s Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer and choreographed by Signature Theatre’s Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner.
“For years, we have wanted to make Signature’s musicals available to more audiences,” said Signature Theatre Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer. “This new expansion of our programming provides that opportunity by combining the best talent in Washington theater with the electric atmosphere of a rock concert. We’re excited to put on our dancing shoes and bring this fun-loving musical, featuring 22 ABBA hits in a brand new production, to The Anthem.”
Set to the soundtrack of ABBA’s greatest songs, including “Dancing Queen,” “S.O.S.” “Super Trouper,” “The Winner Takes It All” and more, this joyful and heartwarming celebration of family and friendship will have you dancing in the aisles. The wedding of the year is missing one thing – the father of the bride. After Sophie snoops in her mother’s diary, she secretly invites three possible fathers to their Greek island home – with hilarious and touching results.
Tickets are available on TheAnthemDC.com and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are also available at The Anthem, 9:30 Club, Lincoln Theatre, and Merriweather Post Pavilion box offices during normal box office hours, and at 9:30 Ticket Truck. There are no service charges at the box offices and ticket truck.
Casting and creative team members will be announced at a later date.
