Jacob Von Thyboe Reviews
“Brilliant performance of Holberg.” ★★★★★
“The classic language, poshness and foolishness are easily combined with modern songs, elvis like, emancipation and frivolous movement. Playful, creative, some simple props are used and vehicles reinvented in funny ways.
When the war reaches the level of the sandpit, the play ends, as the play eventually must.
Can you play Holberg in swim suites? Yes, you better believe it, and it’s hilarious.”
Jane Prior, Kulturkongen
“An easily digested ” Holbergian ” pool full with silly splashes of charm ! !” ★★★★★
“What a lovely summer evening in Odense !…….. A crazy institution gets like this. For a lot was going on. Both in and around the pool, in the audiences and from the windows of the castle the characters were popping up in their summer clothes and hot bodies…….Yes – all in all, you simply just well entertained from start to end ! It was an evening to remember in big smiles.”

“You’ve never seen Holberg like this …” ★★★★
“To the tones of Gwen Stefani and Nik & Jay – and a Pool scene in the midst – folds out a new interpretation of a Holberg’s comedy from 1723 , elegantly guided through by Jesper in his bathrope.
Preserves the old language and sense of comedy, while swim suits replaces the traditionnelle costumes and Poul Krebs is sung instead of the serenades – original and utterly entertaining!”
