A dining experience, combined with the theatricals of the show Mamma Mia!, will be opening at The O2, London next spring.
Executive producer of the show, and original ABBA member Björn Ulvaeus and producer Ingrid Sutej have revealed that Mamma Mia! The Party, will open at The O2 in London late spring 2019.
Tickets will be going on sale this autumn. Further information, such as group rates will be announced in due course.
What does Mamma Mia! The Party involve?
The idea behind the experience arose when Björn Ulvaeus watched people at the musical Mamma Mia! having such a good time and getting into party mood. By the end of the show, he considered how it could be continued elsewhere.
Mamma Mia! The Party has a different story to that of the hit stage musical. It follows an exotic Greek taverna and its landlord Nikos, and his family and friends.
Work has now begun on transforming one of the venues within The O2 into Nikos’ Taverna, where the experience takes place. The idea is for guests will feel as if they’re right in the heart of a Greek island paradise, sitting around tables in the taverna’s courtyard complete with a fountain, amongst olive trees and bougainvillea.
While the story of Nikos and his family plays out, an audience of around 500 people will be able to eat Mediterranean food, drink, and even have the opportunity to dance along to ABBA songs.
The show experience is already running in Stockholm where it is now in its third year.
Björn Ulvaeus commented: “We believe bringing Mamma Mia! The Party to The O2 will add to this already vibrant cultural destination and provide the perfect location for our exciting new show.”
