Mama Mia hits mi-mi-milestone

NEW YORK, July 5 (UPI) -- The feel-good ABBA musical, "Mamma Mia!," Thursday became the 19th longest-running production in Broadway history, Playbill.com has reported.

The show snatched the honor from the recent revival of "Cabaret" when it played its 2,378th performance Thursday night.

Set on a Greek island, "Mamma Mia!" is about a young girl who -- on the eve of her own wedding and much to the chagrin of her strong-willed mother -- tries to figure out which of three strangers is her long-lost father.

A film version of "Mamma Mia!" starring Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan, is in the works.

The stage musical of "Mama Mia!" is playing at Manhattan's Winter Garden Theatre.
