Due to unprecedented demand for tickets, Curtain Call's production of MAMMA MIA has been extended again. This vibrant musical comedy production playing in The Kweskin Theatre, Stamford, will now run through October 20.
"I'm thrilled with the response we've had from audience members...many who have bought tickets to come back to see MAMMA MIA again," said Lou Ursone, Curtain Call’s executive director and producer for Mamma Mia. "This has been a terrific way to kick off our 28th season," he added.
Through ABBA’s greatest hits, Mamma Mia! tells the comical story of Sophie, on a small Greek island, who dreams of the perfect wedding – one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is! After reading her mom’s diary, Sophie secretly invites the three men her mom wrote about to her wedding. This enchanting and unforgettable tale of love, laughter, family and friendship is set to ABBA classics including “Dancing Queen,” “S.O.S.,” “Super Trouper,” “Take A Chance on Me,” “The Winner Takes It All,” and the title song “Mamma Mia!”
“I am thrilled to be the first theatre in the area to present this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship,” said Ursone. “When we were offered the rights to present this show back in July 2017, I immediately accepted and announced it, even though we hadn’t even started the 2017-18 season,” Ursone added. “Whether it’s your first time seeing Mamma Mia or your 10th, we know you’ll have a great time,” he said.
