MAMMA MIA Returns to the PAC
Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ MAMMA MIA!, the smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. The show is co-sponsored by Mix 94.1 Radio and the Tuscarawas County Community Foundation.
MAMMA MIA! is one of the most successful musicals of all time, the eighth longest running show in Broadway history and one of only five current musicals to have run for more than 10 years on Broadway. The West End production is now in its 17th year. The international tour has visited more than 81 foreign cities in 37 countries.
Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” MAMMA MIA! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.
