Signature Theatre Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer (Broadway’s Gigi, Follies, and Million Dollar Quartet) will direct a new production of the international hit musical Mamma Mia! this summer at the new D.C. venue The Anthem.

Choreographed by Signature Theatre Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner, the ABBA musical will be presented June 25–July 5, 2020.

“For years, we have wanted to make Signature's musicals available to more audiences,” said Schaeffer in a statement. “This new expansion of our programming provides that opportunity by combining the best talent in Washington theatre with the electric atmosphere of a rock concert.”
