ABBAmania is rated the number one Abba tribute production in the world highlighted by authentic costumes, made by the seamstress from the hit Broadway musical, Mamma Mia, and incredible vocals by cast members Toby Boyle, Danny Gluckstein, Carly Broome and Katrina Wallis. The vocalists are accompanied by a live onstage band and the show features twenty-two Abba songs in its two-set show with costume changes, choreography, comedy and a great concert sound. Wherever the show plays it wins such critical praise as "Abba-solutely brilliant. The authenticity of the production has to be seen and heard to be believed, and the quality of the vocals and harmonies set new standards in London’s West End.” Whatsonstage.com (West End reviewer).

ABBAmania will take the stage of the Downtown Cabaret Theatre for four performances only beginning Friday, December 14 and continuing Saturday, December 15 and Sunday, December 16. The Downtown Cabaret Theatre is located at 263 Golden Hill Street in downtown Bridgeport, Connecticut.

ABBAmania has toured internationally to Venezuela, Tahiti, Mexico, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Luxembourg, North America and many more, making this the world's most successful touring Abba show.

ABBAmania takes the audience back in time to when Abba was on stage, live in concert. It’s guaranteed…the ABBA sound and its popularity will never go away. If audiences loved them in the '70s, audiences will love ABBAmania.
