East West Players presents their version of the award- winning Broadway musical Mamma Mia! Directed by East West Players’ Producing Artistic Director Snehal Desai, the musical is set to run from May 9th through June 9th at the David Henry Hwang Theater in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Mamma Mia! is part of East West Players’ 53rd Anniversary Season themed, Culture Shock, which is about “disrupting the status quo and taking charge of the outsider narrative.”
“I am so excited to bring Mamma Mia! to East West Players. Reflecting on the theme of ‘culture shock,’ this unique production will feature a diverse, Asian American-led cast—challenging the perception of who is perceived as an American abroad and exploring the culture shock we often feel in our own families generationally,” says EWP Producing Artistic Director Snehal Desai.
The cast includes The King and I’s Broadway stars Joan Almedilla and Alan Ariano, as well as Grace Yoo, Elvira Barjau, Anthea Neri, Max Torrez, Danny Bernardo, Michael Palma, Kevin Perdido, Nicole Santiago, Ala Tiata, Edelyn Okano, Dekontee Turkile, Andrew Ge, Steven Agdeppa and singer/songwriters AJ Rafael and Jules Aurora.
Opening night will be held on May 16th with previews starting on Thursday May 9th running through Sunday May 12th.
