JORITV: Mamma Mia International Tour (Manila) - Mamma Mia

Yesterday I finally got the chance to see Mamma Mia! live on stage.  It is an open book that I really hate the movie version of this musical despite the fact that it stars Meryl Streep.  Don't get me wrong, I like Meryl Streep and I worship her for being one of the most excellent actress alive but still there is something about the movie that makes it so wrong.  I'll discuss it in details on my review but for now, here is a teaser video of the show.

Finally, Manila is ready to watch MAMMA MIA! The international tour of the highly-anticipated musical, supported by the classic songs of ABBA, will be staged at the CCP Main Theater starting 24 January 2012 now been extended til19th of February, for a limited season only!

MAMMA MIA! creative producer, Judy Craymer, first met Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, the song-writing geniuses behind ABBA. She was specially inspired by the song 'The Winner Takes It All,' its lyrics telling a roller-coaster story of love and loss, which became the basis in creating what would become MAMMA MIA!

Craymer did not change the lyrics because if audiences really listened to ABBA's songs, they would notice how they fell into two different generations -- the innocent, playful songs like 'Honey, Honey' and 'Dancing Queen', and the more reflective, emotional songs such as 'The Winner Takes It All' and 'Knowing Me, Knowing You'. From the lyrical prowess of ABBA, the idea of a cross-generational love-story was conceived.

The story of MAMMA MIA! unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of Sophie Sheridan's wedding, she goes on a quest to discover the identity of her father and 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 an enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship.
