Wicked Grows With It's Audience

Posted on April 15, 2017 at 9:38pm 0 Comments

Mama Mia! is a show that really makes you wonder: who came up with this idea, and how does it work this well?

As it happens, she was right, and the show has been allowing former dancing queens to relive their glory days and introducing new audiences to ABBA’s music ever since. Based around a Greek…
