Hello. I am a new member to this site. It is heartening to see so many ABBA fans after all these years.
There are a number of tribute bands that are keeping ABBA's legacy alive. I have never seen any of these, but it seems like they are performing only ABBA's hits. If so, that is a shame because there are so many ABBA songs that are lesser-known but still of high quality. Thinking about how these lesser-known songs could be revived, I came up with the idea of putting them into a musical, just like Mamma Mia did with ABBA's hits.
I went through the ABBA catalogue and created a skeleton scenario for a musical using 23 ABBA songs, none of which are used in Mamma Mia. I sent it to Bjorn and Benny, as well as Judy Craymer (producer of Mamma Mia) but they all said they had no plans to create another musical.
Perhaps someone here could do something with this scenario, or knows someone who could. Maybe a student of motion picture arts or an animator? It would make a good YouTube item.
If you would like to see this scenario e-mail me at email@example.com
I had a very similar idea a while ago only it was a tribute show not a musical. Your idea sounds really really cool and though there isn't much I know how to do besides art and limited Lego animations (that I haven't done in a very long time), I'd love to help!
