City Theater Company, new Resident Company at The Grand, presents Mamma Mia! as its first production of the 25th season in Studio One. The beloved musical is a celebration of love, friendship, and female empowerment, with a nostalgic soundtrack featuring some of pop music’s favorite songs from the ’70s.
The past and the present collide when 20-year old Sophie invites her three possible fathers to her island wedding. As the men and other guests arrive, memories come to life through timeless tunes that explore what it means to be a mother, a daughter, a father, a friend, a lover.
Kerry Kristine McElrone, Interim Artistic Director, says “As the company’s first female Artistic Director, opening our 25th season with a show that truly celebrates women and their relationships-all kinds of relationships-was the perfect choice. And taking a hugely popular musical that is known for being larger than life and making it intimate and up-front, stripped down to its essence, was also appealing. We have done this with most everything we’ve produced for 25 years. I am very excited to invite our patrons to Sophie’s wedding!”
