Tuesday-Thursday To-Do: 'Mamma Mia!'

‘MAMMA MIA!'
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $23-$63.

Never underestimate the staying power of ABBA. Despite dissolving more than 25 years ago, the Swedish pop group doesn't seem in any danger of falling out of the cultural consciousness. They're still selling millions of records every year; in fact, estimates put the quartet behind only the Beatles, Elvis and Michael Jackson in terms of albums sold. And then there's “Mamma Mia!” the jukebox musical inspired by the songs of ABBA. It's celebrating seven sold-out years on Broadway, a film adaptation that's the highest grossing movie musical ever and this international tour. Those who're likely to attend surely know the story, but just in case: A single woman, who owns a small hotel on a Greek island, invites two lifelong friends to come to the isle for her daughter's wedding. The three women once played together in a band called Donna and the Dynamos. Meanwhile, the daughter invites three men from her mother's past in hopes of finding the identity of her father. Singing — songs like “S.O.S.” and “Dancing Queen” — and dancing ensues. “Mamma Mia” sticks around at Robinson on Wednesday and Thursday; same price and time.
