- Abba fans hail Her Majesty for Jubilee
MAMMA MIA! celebrates the Queen's Jubilee this Monday June 3. The musical comprising a medley of Abba songs moves from the Prince Edward Theatre to Buckingham Palace to provide pre-concert entertainment at the Party at the Palace.
The three year old smash hit musical takes inspiration from the story of mothers and daughters outlined in Catherine Johnson's book. Directed by Phylidda Lloyd, Mamma Mia! strings a collection of celebrated pop songs around a coherent story to succeed where Queen the musical is currently failing.
And the show deserves a Royal welcome. Currently playing at six venues worldwide including Broadway, Mamma Mia! is expected to pick up at least one Tony at the awards ceremony this Sunday June 2. Songs include Money, Money, Money, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, I Have A Dream, Mamma Mia! and Dancing Queen.
