There was Saturday good news for the Danish revues, which goes a uncertain future this summer, when they should have played for audiences around Denmark.
because of coronavirussen it is questionable, however, whether it's going to happen, and it may mean cancellations or postponements of the many Danish revues.
Saturday was all political parties - except the New Civil - agreed on the creation of a nødpulje, which can be searched by the troubled cultural institutions and seasonal scenekunstvirksomheder - that is, revyerne. Here they can recoup 80 percent of the cost.

the Agreement creates joy from Lars Arvad, who is chairman of the revyernes trade association, RevyDanmark. He tells this to the Extra Blade when he is asked what his immediate reaction to it is.
- it is that It is fine. It is made for us and to keep the hand under us. It is a safety net that is stretched out under the revyerne, and we are of course very happy that it is made, he says.
this Year's revues are, however, still greatly in danger, and Lars Arvad, which also stands behind the Odense Sommerrevy, lack response from the politicians about the situation.
- But we still need a decision to whether we even can come to play. We are in a situation where we do not know whether we should cancel or postpone, and if we are covered by the assistance package, if we cancel - or whether we should have an injunction from the state. And so we miss still the answer to what a large assembly is, he says.

The most recent time has been hard from the revyerne, because they do not have known, when it again becomes possible to perform. On Sunday evening, reported Kåre Mølbak, who is technical director at the Statens Serum Institute, in an interview with Berlingske out that the danes must reckon with the social distance in at least one year.
The message was a blow for Lars Arvad and the many revues.
- It is frustrating, and we all know to be worn. When we got the package, was there, of course, a big stone from the heart, because the bankruptcy was pushed at a distance, but we are still in a very difficult situation. It is both economically, but also kommunikationsmæssigt - for what should we report out to our customers?

Lars Arvad believes that the new stimulus package saves revyerne from bankruptcy, and it is important. For he feels there will be a need for revyerne, when the danes once again have a normal daily life.
- I think there is a bright future, when we come out on the other side of the coronavirussen, so I think just that you need revy to interpret on the whole situation.
But until then, we are incredibly vulnerable, for we live by that people assemble themselves together, sitting close and laughing into each other in the head. And it is not just what you recommend at the moment, he says.
