Theater in the Red Stick is set to have a big week, with three can’t-miss events scattered throughout the city.
You’re probably already familiar with Mamma Mia! thanks to the 2008 film of the same name. For those unfamiliar, the play is based on the music of legendary Swedish pop group ABBA—the musical’s title stems from the group’s hit song “Mamma Mia.” Since its debut in 1999, Mamma Mia! has garnered more than $2 billion worldwide and is now the ninth longest running production in Broadway history.
If you want to catch Theatre Baton Rouge’s production before it’s too late, secure your tickets here. Tickets are $30, or $19 for students. The production takes place at Theatre Baton Rouge, 7155 Florida Blvd.
