Behind the Scenes Mamma Mia July 9, 2008 In this video interview, director Phyllida Llyod and producer Judy Craymer take us behind-the-scenes on the latest movie-musical ‘Mamma Mia!’ The musical based on the tunes of Abba has already made $2 billion in theatres around the world and now, ‘Mamma Mia!’ is coming to the big-screen. In case your not one of the 30 million people, who has seen (and sung along) to this Abba inspired musical, here’s the gist: An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she’s raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends–practical and no-nonsense Rosie and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya–from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But, Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own. In our latest video interview, we go behind the scenes with Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Llyod and its producer Judy Craymer: ‘Mamma Mia!’ is in Irish cinemas Friday.
