Denmark's largest revue, Cirkusrevyen, has been canceled for this year.
It informs Cirkusrevyen in a press release and justifying it with the combination of coronakrisen, a kommunekonflikt and new guidelines on performances.
This revysæson should have been the definitive last for Ulf Pilgaard, who at the age of 79 years wanted to have thanks after 40 seasons, but he is also to find on the poster next year, informs Cirkusrevyen.
There he gets joined on stage by Cirkusrevy-newcomer Merete Mærkedahl, who is known for her role as maid Otilia in 'fawlty towers', and of revyveteranerne Niels Ellegaard, Lisbet Dahl, Henrik Lykkegaard and Niels Olsen.
- It is really a pity that we can not implement the revue in years, but I'm very happy that Ulf has said yes to be on the team next year. We look forward to seeing all the many wonderful guests again in 2021 for one hell of a revysæson, when we finally can meet again and celebrate the Ulf, says Lisbet Dahl, who also directs the revue.
this is The first time since 1997, there are six actors on stage, sounds from the Cirkusrevyens director, Torben 'Clogs' Pedersen.
- It is a great team, we've put together in 2021. I am excited to see what the team will offer next year, when we all really need a Cirkusrevy, looking back on this incredible time, we all are going through right now, says managing director Torben 'Clogs' Pedersen in a statement.
this year the team consisted otherwise of a femkløver consisting of just Ulf Pilgaard and the experienced revystjerner Niels Ellegaard and Lisbet Dahl and also of debutanterne Mille Lehfeldt and Carsten Svendsen, who even can't make their entrance on the stage.
Cirkusrevyen anno 2021 will premiere 1. may the next year.
Although Cirkusrevyen will be closed in the year, hitting the Hill still opening its doors. It happens from Friday the 29. may.
