France’s former first lady, Cécilia Ciganer-Albéniz, along with fiancé Richard Attias and two bus loads of family and friends, attended Saturday night’s performance of Mamma Mia! at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway – as a pre-wedding celebration

Ciganer-Albéniz, 50, and Attias, a 48-year-old Moroccan-born public relations executive, plan to tie the knot Sunday in a civil ceremony before 148 guests, with a reception at Rockefeller Center to follow.

During the Broadway show, the couple sat in the center of the theater three rows from the back in the orchestra section. At intermission, they mingled with guests. The soon-to-be newlyweds even got a shout-out at the end of the show from cast member Andy Kelso, who said, “And congratulations to Cecelia and Richard!”

Ciganer-Albéniz divorced current French president Nicolas Sarkozy on Oct. 18 after 11 years of marriage. Sarkozy wed former model Carla Bruni on Feb. 2.
