Mamma Mia! (An Incomplete History)

DID YOU KNOW: 

MAMMA MIA has been performed in over 325 cities in 40 countries on 6 continents. Sorry, Polar Bears- no aisles to dance in in Antarctica...well, there were aisles, but they melted :(. 

Almost 20 years before MAMMA MIA, the two B's of ABBA Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus wrote the music for the musical CHESS (lyrics by Time Rice). This completely explains "One Night in Bangkok". 

The 2008 film version of MAMMA MIA grossed over $600 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing live action movie musical OF ALL TIME.
