East West Players’ “Mamma Mia!,” starring Filipino talents, extends run

East West Players’ “Mamma Mia!” starring Filipino talents, extended its run in Los Angeles’ David Henry Hwang Theater, due to high demand.

Starring Filipina theater star Joan Almedilla, who plays the role popularized by Meryl Streep in the films, the Asian-led production will run until June 23.

The show is traditionally cast with Caucasian actors, but East West Players, the longest-running professional theater of color in America, is showing why inclusive casting works.
