Mamma Mia! Celebrates 25 Years In The West End

Published Fri, 8 March 2024

Mamma Mia! is poised to hit a spectacular milestone as it gears up to celebrate its 25th anniversary on the West End stage next month. Since its enchanting debut in 1999 at the Prince Edward Theatre, the ABBA-infused musical has transcended linguistic boundaries, captivating audiences in 16 different languages and amassing an impressive $4 billion at the global box office over its remarkable quarter-century journey.

Judy Craymer, the visionary creator and producer, expressed her delight at the extraordinary success of Mamma Mia! and the joyous occasion it marks. The West End production stands as a global flagship, having seamlessly transitioned from the Prince Edward Theatre to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2004, and finally finding a home at the Novello Theatre in 2012.

The 25th-anniversary celebration on April 6, 2024, at the Novello Theatre promises to be a grand affair, solidifying Mamma Mia!'s place as the third musical in West End history to reach this milestone, following in the illustrious footsteps of Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera. Notably, it will be the first musical written and directed by a woman to achieve this distinction, marking a historic moment in the annals of West End theatre. As the iconic musical continues to enchant audiences worldwide, Judy Craymer looks forward to many more years of Mamma Mia! magic.
