A new pro­duc­tion of Cather­ine John­son’s mega-suc­cess­ful mu­si­cal Mamma Mia! hits the stage in Jakarta this month, with more per­for­mances lined up for Sin­ga­pore in Novem­ber. The Abba-in­spired feel-good hit is one of the long­est-run­ning shows on New York’s Broad­way and Lon­don’s West End, and has been per­formed for over 60 mil­lion the­atre­go­ers around the globe. The story, re­garded as a tri­umph for fe­male em­pow­er­ment, fol­lows a young bride-tobe in a Greek is­land par­adise as she rushes to find out who her fa­ther is be­fore her wed­ding day, all set against a back­drop of clas­sic Abba tunes like “Danc­ing Queen”, “S.O.S.”, “Take a Chance on Me” and “Voulez-Vous” for true fam­ily-friendly fun.
