There will be no sommerrevy in Nykøbing Falster, denmark this summer.
Revyens director and conductor, Mickey Statements, has decided to cancel all of the performances due to coronasituationen.
It must notify all ticket buyers on Monday.
- I dare not else. There are too many unknowns in the game. We need to play for 500 people, 280, or only 75? And dare the audience at all to go in the revue? It is no secret that revypublikummet is mature, and many with heart disease and diabetes and so on have already approached us and expressed concern, says Mickey Statements and adds:

- Personally, I dare not take the responsibility, if there are some among the audience, or my staff, who is infected.
Last year, Nykøbing Falster Revue named the country's best revue, and the revue was scheduled to have premiere 11. June.
There has been played in a revue at Nykøbing Theatre since 1912. As the Volmer-Sørensen in 1972, took over the leadership from Louis Miehe-Renard, he created the concept of 'Revykøbing', which still hangs on, even though it has not been used since 1978.
Keld and Hilda Heick was a period of time the board of directors of the revue, in Flemming Krøll, in 1990, took over and created the current revytradition, where the revue has been the country's second largest. Last year drew Krøll in the background, and left the executive board to the Mickey Statements and Pernille Schrøder, but she chose already after the first year 'just' to be an actor.
At this year revyhold was Pernille Schrøder, Julie the German occupiers, Henrik Lykkegaard, Kasper Gattrup and Kristian Boland. Who, to be on the stage next summer remains to be seen, but Mickey's Statements says:
- We must quickly started to put next year's team, and then we started to sell tickets for next year, so we get busy.Show more Close
Mickey's Statements have a big prayer to the audience, who bought tickets to this year's now cancelled revue:
I sincerely hope that they will choose to exchange their tickets for vouchers for the next year, it will beat the bottom out of an already hard-pressed economy, if we must pay people the money back. I really do call on our loyal audience to back up about the revue on the way, he says.
It is only the second year that Mickey Statements are in the forefront of the traditional Nykøbing Falster Revue, which is the country's second-largest, and he refers to himself the situation as the ’worst possible start’. He and his family moved to the island of Falster, and his wife said in the winter his job as a school teacher up to work full-time in revyens administration.
- We're not going to have to go from house and home, so wrong, it does not go, but it is certainly not the start I had dreamed of, he says.
