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.

MAMMA MIA! Breaks Box Office History in Blackpool

International smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! has broken box office history with more than £2million in ticket sales in just six weeks.
The figure, released today, makes MAMMA MIA! Blackpool’s highest ever grossing show.
It is more than 10 years since Blackpool hosted a full Summer Season but with the MAMMA MIA! International Tour in the town for a 12-week run, theatre bosses at the Winter Gardens are confident this is a bright new start for the resort.
Michael Williams, Managing Director of the Winter Gardens, said he is delighted with ticket sales so far and is looking forward to seeing the continued success of the Summer Season.
He said, “When we announced last year that MAMMA MIA! was coming to Blackpool for a whole Summer Season we were quietly confident that it would be a success but you never know what is going to happen. We are now thrilled to announce that ticket sales have reached more than £2million in the first six weeks of the run. This is absolute proof that MAMMA MIA! is right for Blackpool and that Blackpool is more than capable of attracting such a show and the audiences to support it.
