ABBA’s evocative tunes and lyrics have made Mamma Mia a megahit. Fans will love hearing the nostalgic ‘70s tunes, interwoven with a giddy plot about a girl named Sophie on the verge of marriage seeking her real father. Based on her mother, Donna’s old diary, there are three candidates.

The show never goes too deeply into the dicier issues of Donna’s lifestyle, so it is fine, uplifting family fare for ages five and up.

From the official website: “The show has full-on, high-energy to spare, with periodic breaks for ballads and drama.”

Will Sophie go through with her wedding without a father to walk her down the aisle? Will Donna find true love, despite her fierce independence? With there be a spectacular ‘70s style finale?

Find out by sharing the love, fun and goodwill that is Mamma Mia with your whole family.

Mamma Mia plays March 28 through April 6 at the Orpheum Theatre, 1192 Market Street in San Francisco. Tickets range in price from $40 to $160.
