Do these two ba-zillionaires look happy? Well, they should. Sure, ABBA frontmen Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus have created one of the most successful musical franchises in history with Mamma Mia!, but what they’d really been itching to do is tell you the story of Kristina, which tells of a group of Swedish immigrants who settle in 19th century Minnesota.
The talented duo has been working for over a decade to get the show to Broadway, and next week, they’re one step closer. Kristina, which played Stockholm in the 1990s, will have a New York premiere at Carnegie Hall on September 23 and 24, with Swedish star Helen Sjöholm and Mamma Mia! Tony nominee Louise Pitre featured in the cast. Learn more about Kristina in the video above!
