MAMMA MIA! will play the Liverpool Empire for the first time next year

The MAMMA MIA! International Tour will perform for the first time ever at the Liverpool Empire from Friday 20 February to Saturday 14 March, with Liverpool being the only UK mainland date outside of London to host the production in 2015. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 2 September at 1pm. There will be a Gala Performance on Tuesday 24 February at 7.30pm. The show enjoyed a hugely successful sell-out season at Echo Arena Liverpool in 2010.

MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious  vision of staging the story-telling magic  of ABBA’s timeless songs with an enchanting tale of family and friendship unfolding on a Greek island paradise. To date, it has been seen by more than 54 million people in 39 productions in 14 different languages. MAMMA MIA! The Movie is the highest worldwide grossing live-action musical film of all time and one in four households in the UK has the DVD, which is now Amazon UK’s biggest selling DVD ever.
From West End to global phenomenon, the London production of MAMMA MIA! has now been seen by more than 10% of the entire UK population. It is one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years both on Broadway and in the West End, and in 2011, it became the first Western musical ever to be staged in Mandarin in the People’s Republic of China.

With music & lyrics by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus, MAMMA MIA! is written by Catherine Johnson, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast. The production is designed by Mark Thompson, with lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce & Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material & arrangements by Martin Koch.

The Liverpool Empire cast will be announced in due course.

Nick Grace, Associate Producer of the MAMMA MIA! International Tour, said: “MAMMA MIA! continues to be a huge success around the world and we are thrilled that the International Tour is finally coming to the Liverpool Empire Theatre. We are expecting a phenomenal demand for tickets for this strictly limited season. MAMMA MIA! is the perfect feel-good show and we are sure audiences will find it the perfect place to have the time of their lives!” 

The MAMMA MIA! International Tour is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East & Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, Stage Entertainment and NGM.
