About Mamma MIA
A romantic comedy and one of the most popular musicals of all time, Mamma Mia the movie brings together the fun and vivacity of ABBA's music with the stunning beauty of the Greek isles. With an all-star cast that includes Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, and Stellan Skarsgard, Mamma Mia is a musical and romance all in one set in the cool blues and whites of the island of Kalokairi. Amanda Seyfried also stars as Streep's daughter, who is on the eve of her wedding. She has only one wish to fulfil that could make her wedding day perfect, the presence of her father to walk her down the aisle. Unfortunately, her mother, played by Streep, has never revealed to her who her father is, so Seyfried's character undertakes a plan to invite the three men she suspects of being her father to the wedding. This creates complications for her lovelorn mother and all the wedding visitors. The songs of ABBA are interspersed throughout Mamma Mia and performed by the actors themselves, adding a charm and originality to the film. The musical also is one of the longest-running productions in the history of Broadway. Recordings by the original London cast and the Broadway cast are available on CD. The movie is available on DVD along with CD versions of the soundtrack. For those who want to enjoy the clear blue beauty of the Greek islands, photo stills and poster art from the movie are another great option to consider. Signed photos from the stars, including Streep, are another fun way in which to commemorate the joy of this entertaining musical.
