NEW YORK (AP) — "Mamma Mia!" Broadway's dancing queen, will close in September after a run that included two theaters and left it the eighth-longest running show on the Great White Way.

Producers say Thursday that the frothy musical that uses ABBA songs will close Sept. 5 after 5,765 performances.

It has grossed more than $600 million — quite a lot of "Money, Money, Money" — and outlasted over 500 other Broadway productions.
