Palau d'Esports - Barcelona Teatre Musical, September 08 to January 2009
The Musical Mamma Mia, based on the songs of ABBA, was written by British playwright Catherine Johnson and composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. The musical premiere was in 1999 in London and many other productions have been made in many different countries and languages. Also there has been a stage-to-film adaptation presented this 2008 with Meryl Streep playing the role of single mother Donna, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Stellan Skarsgård as the three potential fathers and Amanda Seyfeild as Donna’s daughter Sophie.
The musical includes different songs of the musicla group ABBA, very popular in the 70's and 80's as “Mamma Mia”, "Super Trouper", "Dancing Queen", "Knowing Me, Knowing You", "Thank You for the Music", "Money, Money, Money", "The Winner Takes It All", "Voulez Vous", "I Have a Dream" and "SOS".
The musical play starts in a small Greek Island where Sophie a young 20-year-old girl lives with her mother Donna, a single mother, who runs a hotel called Villa Donna. Sophie is planning to marry Sky and wants her father to be present on her wedding, but she does not know the father. Sophie found her mother’s diary from 20 years ago with all stories, and she concludes that the father may be one of three menthat appear in the diary: Sam Carmichael, Harry Bright or Bill Anderson. Sophie mails invitations to the three without telling either the mother or her fiancé. All three men come to the island, thinking that Donna had asked them to come, but Sophie force them to agree not to reveal that she wrote the invitations pretending to be her mother.
