All-English version of Mamma Mia! party likely

English version on the cards for Eurovision week and summer
When all four Abba members grabbed headlines around the world earlier this month by appearing briefly on stage together for the first time in three decades, it was for the opening of Björn Ulvaeus’ latest venture in Stockholm – a Greek taverna modelled on the Mamma Mia! musical and movie.
Aimed at locals and tourists, the new entertainment venue Mamma Mia! The Party was unveiled to 130 lucky fans who could afford the 1,340 kronor (€145) tickets.
The spoken parts in the new show are in Swedish but songs are sung in English. The characters are different to those in Mamma Mia! despite the similar setting.
However, Ulvaeus said that a version entirely in English is being developed for the week of the Eurovision Song Contest in May as well as for the summer season.
“A few days after tonight I’ll be going to the West Indies and I’ll be translating the script into English,” he said at last Wednesday’s premiere.
It’s very unlikely this would involve a more formal Abba reunion, he added.
The lucky few who got to see the show last week were presented with a menu that included olives, tzatziki, meatballs (Greek-style) and ouzo. Fans tweeted from inside the venue that they saw Frida and Agnetha seated at the same table singing along to their songs.
