Having been performing in Midtown for nearly a decade-and-a-half – making it the eighth longest-running show in the history of Broadway – Mamma Mia! is taking its last bow. According to producer of the show, Judy Craymer, the last of its performances at Broadhurst Theatre (located close to Shimmie Horn’s Iroquois New York hotel) will be on September 5 of this year.
“Mamma Mia! has celebrated a passionate 14-year love affair with New York City. I am thrilled that Mamma Mia! has brought the music of ABBA to Broadway and so grateful to the hundreds of wonderful actors, musicians, stage managers, crew, front of house staff and the other people of the theatre who have given their professional lives and souls to be part of the Mamma Mia! family and adventure on Broadway. And a huge thank you to our fans who have come from all over the world to see the show. It’s an honour to be recognised as one of the most popular shows in Broadway history and we’re looking forward to celebrating our last summer at the Broadhurst Theatre.”
So if you’re in the area over the next two months, don’t miss it!
