When it premiered on Broadway back in 2001 — just five weeks after 9/11 — British playwright Catherine Johnson’s Mamma Mia! got New Yorkers clapping along to disco mainstays and even dancing in the aisles. Referencing its spirit-lifting powers, critic Ben Brantley likened the jukebox musical to “the theatrical equivalent of comfort food.” Cleverly weaving together 20-plus earworms by Swedish pop quartet Abba, it follows a young bride-to-be who invites three of her mother’s ex-lovers to her wedding (on the Greek island where her mother lives) in hopes of determining which one is her father. Ken Urso directs the Public Theater’s production.
