Long Island’s largest year-round professional theatrical venue, The Argyle Theatre (Mark and Dylan Perlman, Executive Producers & Managing Partners; Evan Pappas, Artistic Director), presents the Broadway hit Mamma Mia! written by Catherine Johnson with music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus and directed and choreographed by Antoinette DiPietropolo with musical direction by Jonathan Brenner.
Mamma Mia! begins performances tonight in advance of its opening night on March 19 running through May 1. The Argyle Theatre (34 West Main St., Babylon).
ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!
“The phenomenon that is Mamma Mia comes to Babylon and The Argyle Theatre. Come dance, sing and rock out with this wonderfully infectious cast who are having the time of their lives. We’ve waited a long time to bring this joyous show to our stage and this is the perfect time for our audiences to celebrate.” Argyle Theatre’s Artistic Director, Evan Pappas.
