Mamma Mia! becomes 16th longest running Broadway show in history

Buoyed by the success of the movie, the stage show keeps on breaking records.

On September 4th, 2008 Mamma Mia! became the sixteenth longest running show in Broadway history, surpassing Hello Dolly! Nearly seven years after opening at the Winter Garden Theatre, Mamma Mia! has remained in the Million Dollar Club, and among Broadway top five selling musicals for the past seven consecutive weeks, a landmark not achieved since 2002.

Seen on stage by over 32 million people around the world, Mamma Mia!, is celebrating more than 6 years on Broadway and is currently playing record-breaking engagements in Las Vegas and on National Tour in the United States.

There are currently 9 productions of Mamma Mia! running around the world (7 resident productions and 2 tours). With a worldwide gross of over $2 Billion, Mamma Mia! is acclaimed by the Associated Press as “quite simply, a phenomenon.”

  1. I was fortunate enough to visit New York and see Mamma Mia there a couple of years ago – it was packed out then and there were a couple of small girls next to me in the row who sang along and knew every word of the songs – however main reason it stands out is that in the megamix finale everyone sang along every one clapped and cheered, but certainly in the stalls no one stood up! the only time I have every known that to happen and I was very surprising as the crowd had gone stood up and danced at the Hairspray musical I had seen the night before, I hope nowadays the audiences are more reactive!
