A brand new ”Four Jacks” show in production, more information on concerts in Spain, also “Stig and Friends” concerts

23. September 2017

Dear Newsletter Recipient,


BRAND NEW SHOW COMING ”NO MORE JACKS – HEADING FOR NEW TIMES 

“A musical foray through the 60's and into the 70's "

What happened to the music when the traditional-bound, rational 50s were replaced by the turbulent and rebellious 60s and continued into the time of collectives and women’s libber in the 70s? Were the old tunes now gone for good? Or did the good melody live on in the new songs?

Rossen, Asholt, Lohmann and Heick recreate the popular More Jacks universe, and in collaboration with Peder Kragerup they throw themselves into a new, amazing journey with the melodious music that keeps us all humming along.

The new show opens Friday 8th September 2018 on The Old Stage in the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen. Ticket sale for the opening night has not been scheduled on the website yet, but keep watching here https://kglteater.dk/
