Anonymous said: Hello! As a fan of international musical theatre, I absolutely love your tumblr. I'll be visiting Finland for the first time next March to see Mamma Mia, and I was wondering if you knew of any other productions that will be playing around that time. I would love to see a musical in Finnish, but nobody seems to have announced their 2014-2015 seasons yet. Do you have any idea of what musical Helsingin Kaupunginteatterin will be performing?

Hi there! Thank you so much, and welcome to Finland!!

It’s still a bit early to say what’ll be playing next March. Mamma Mia!’s spring schedules have been released since the ticket sales have been very good, but yeah, most theatres still keep the spring programme secret. News will start popping up in a couple of months, after the theatres come back from summer holidays and get the fall season started.

If Helsingin kaupunginteatteri sticks to the schedule they’ve been using for the past few years, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying will probably still be playing in March. Can’t say for certain, but it’s likely! They often have two musicals playing at the same time, so they might also have a new premiere for the spring – I doubt Tarzan will play in March anymore (but, again, can’t say for sure).

All in all, sorry I don’t have any more useful information at this point… Keep an eye on the theatre websites, and this blog too – I’ll certainly post news about upcoming premieres once any info is released. :)

Bahar Tokat: Jekyll ja Hyde

Sen jälkeen kun lopetin Jekyllin ja Hyden takia itkemisen, aloin miettiä miten siitä vois kirjottaa vitsejä. Koska sitä mä teen. Pätkä kuvattu viikko Vapun 2014 jälkeen Helsingin Milenkassa, missä testasin tätä juttua ekaa kertaa.
