Area residents will find out why more than 60 million people all around the world have fallen in love with the characters, the story and the music that make "Mamma Mia!" the ultimate feel-good musical, when it opens at Curtain Call’s Kweskin Theatre in Stamford, on Friday, Sept. 14.
Through ABBA’s greatest hits, Mamma Mia! tells the comical story of Sophie, on a small Greek island, who dreams of the perfect wedding – one which includes her father giving her away.

“I am thrilled to be the first theatre in the area to present this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship,” said Lou Ursone, Curtain Call’s executive director and producer for Mamma Mia.
Directing Mamma Mia is veteran Curtain Call director, Tom Coppola, whose last production was the sold out production of Gypsy.
