State Theatre presents ABBA MANIA

(New Brunswick, NJ) -- State Theatre presents ABBA MANIA on Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 8pm. This ABBA tribute includes all the hits, "Dancing Queen," "Mamma Mia," "Super Trouper," "Fernando," "Waterloo," and more.  ABBA MANIA is sponsored by Financial Resources Federal Credit Union. Tickets range from $22-57.

Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anna Frida, collectively known as ABBA, dominated the charts for nearly 10 years and enjoyed nine UK number ones. ABBA's timeless songs were written to be enjoyed live and ABBA MANIA gives the audience exactly that—2 hours of uplifting, dance inducing and sometimes heart-breaking songs, live with fantastic staging, lighting, and effects. The show recreates ABBA's sound not only perfectly, but respectfully too.

ABBA MANIA formed in 1999 and the show has been selling out theatres and concert halls internationally ever since. This show has toured the world in its quest to bring the music of the Swedish supergroup to their millions of fans, old and new. In 2007, it grossed over $1 million at the box office in Sydney, Australia. ABBA MANIA has also ventured to Denmark, Belgium, Spain, South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the UK.
