Kristina is back...Benny and Björn's new production of Kristina från Duvemåla

Benny and Björn's new Finnish  production of Kristina från Duvemåla opened officially at the very small Svenksa Teatern   in Helsinki on February 29, 2012 . This version is in Swedish and is based on the original Swedish production. The new production is more compact; as a result, the pace of the show is faster. It appears that the much reviled song about lice has been dropped. This new version stars Maria Ylipää as Kristina, who must be good, because Bjorn and Benny have always  had trouble in trusting the role to anybody but Helen Sjoholm.  The production.  has gotten good reviews,  I learned something while researching this,  apparently the Swedish name for  Helsinki is Helsingfors. That's why one of the ads for the musical says it is being staged in  Helsingfors. Update-June 2012 The production is currently taking a break for the summer and will come back in the fall.
Update November 2015-Kristina will return to the  Cirkus  Theater in Stockholm on September 12, 2015.
