The smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! lands at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts from January 16 to 27, bringing with it ABBA’s feel-good hits to help wash away the January blues.
Described as ‘the sunniest of all musicals’, the production has been seen and enjoyed by over 60 million people worldwide, in 16 different languages, and now Hongkongers get to sing along to timeless ABBA classics like Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All and, of course, Mamma Mia!
Set on an idyllic Greek island where the sun always shines, MAMMA MIA! tells the story of Sophie and her quest to discover the true identity of her father on the eve of her wedding. The bride-to-be summons three men from her mother’s romantic past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago, leading to a whirling of drama and epic songs.
Starring an all-new UK cast, the production is sure to help lift the spirits of those dreaming about their next sunny vacation. Tickets range from $395 to $1195 and are on sale now.
