Sophie is on the verge of experiencing her dream wedding. She has a perfect man in Sky (just move on) and a perfect setting on a sunny Greek isle, but something is missing. Whos going to walk her down the aisle? A little bit of sleuthing in her mothers diary clues her in to the fact that there are three candidates for the honor. Sophie writes to each possible pappy in the guise of her mother and invites them to her big day, but doesnt tell her mother that her former paramours are on the guest list. Mamma Mia!, the smash musical by Catherine Johnson and ABBAs Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, continues to be an audience favorite across the globe -- its success has a lot to do with the music, no doubt. Mamma Mia! returns to the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-1111 or www.fabulousfox.com) Tuesday through Sunday (February 16 through 21). Tickets are $29 to $70.
