Given the opportunity to see a Broadway musical inspired by ABBA's hits, you may ask yourself, "Should I Laugh or Should I Cry?" But Denver said, "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme More!," and now the acclaimed musical comedy MAMMA MIA! is back, for one week only. Watch a single "Mamma Mia" face her "Waterloo" during her daughter's "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" nuptials. Why the "S.O.S."? Because on the guest list are three potential candidates for aisle-walking duty, men with whom Mamma had engaged in a "Voulez-Vous" one salacious Grecian summer of yore, leaving her with a baby girl "Just Like That." Feeling "Under Attack" by their surprise visit, she thankfully has her "Super Trouper" circle of friends for support. It's a wedding party to remember, and a must-see for anyone who's ever strutted to "Dancing Queen." The show opens tonight at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex and runs through June 1. At $25 and up, the tickets won't take all your "Money, Money, Money"; they're available at 303-893-4100, www.denvercenter.org or any TicketsWest outlet. You'll leave this feel-good production saying "Thank You for the Music!"
May 27-30, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 31, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sun., June 1, 2 & 7:30 p.m., 2008
