The movie trailer. The full movie is arriving in the summer of 2008.
Release Date: July 18th, 2008
“Typical, you wait twenty years for a dad to come along, then you get three of them.”
I saw the stage version at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco in November 2000, and truly enjoyed every moment of it. Louise Pitre was the star of that version, she played Donna. If Abba is a guilty pleasure, I’m guilty. Though back in the beginning I wasn’t, I happened to be in Stockholm when Abba won the European Song Contest with “Waterloo” back in 1974 and everywhere you went there were groups of girls singing it at the top of their lungs, on buses, trains, planes. I hated that song. But I pretty much have loved the rest of their songbook.
The cast for the movie looks to be interesting at the very least.

I’m looking forward to it.

Just in case you forgot, here is the real thing. Abba singing Mama Mia.
