Mamma Mia is a jukebox musical written by British playwright, Catherine Johnson, based on the songs of ABBA, composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Un. Lucky for us, the dinner theatre group came on tour to Stockholm that month and there was space for our large group to attend one of their performances. We had a lovely meal while the acting was happening around us. After the family style dinner, there was live music and dancing to Abba’s greatest hits!
We were very excited when organizing this event for our clients. Unfortunately we discovered that this particular dinner theatre was performing in Swedish! We had to pull some strings and work very hard to convince the manager and director of the show to put on a performance in English for one of the 4 nights they were in town. This was not an easy sell. But, with our magical negotiating skills, we managed to do the impossible!
