ABBA musical Mamma Mia! is Paramount Theatre's 2016-17 Broadway opener

Sep 13, 2016 10:24AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

More than 60 million people in 40 countries on six different continents have reveled in Mamma Mia!, the iconic musical about love and friendship, of lost dreams and that last chance to make it right, all set to the music of ABBA, one of the most popular bands in the world.   

This fall, 30,000+ Chicago musical theater fans will boost those stats even higher when Paramount Theatre kicks off its sixth Broadway season with a fresh, sparkling new production of the feel-good international phenomenon that turned musical theater on its ear. 

Directed by Paramount Artistic Director Jim Corti with musical direction by Tom Vendafreddo and choreography by William Carlos Angulo, Paramount’s can’t-miss, catchy take on Mamma Mia! promises a ton of fun with the show’s touching story of a happy family wedding, while cataloguing one famous ABBA pop hit after another, including “Dancing Queen,” “Take a Chance,” “SOS” and “Knowing Me, Knowing You.” 

Regular performances run through October 30. Show times are Wednesday at 1:30 pm and 7 pm; Thursday at 7 pm; Friday at 8 pm; Saturday at 3 pm and 8 pm; and Sunday at 1 pm and 5:30pm. Tickets are $44 to $59.   

The Paramount Theatre is located at 23 E. Galena Blvd., in the heart of downtown Aurora, which is rife with affordable parking options, plus new restaurants popping up left and right for pre- or post-show dining options. For subscriptions, single tickets and information, go to ParamountAurora.com, call (630) 896-6666, or visit the Paramount box office Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm, and two hours prior to evening performances. Mamma Mia! is rated PG.
