Today I saw Den allvarsamma leken at Klara Soppteater (soup theatre) which is part of Stockholms Stadsteater, that have one hour shows in the middle of the day during lunch hour, so soup, bread and coffee is included.
For those who don’t know Den allvarsamma leken (The Serious Game) is a 1912 novel by Hjalmar Söderberg, that is a love story about unfortunate decisions, illusions and resignation.

The strangler is a rare poison, which makes the person unable to breathe. The poison is made from plants that are only found on islands in the Jade Sea. The leaves of the plant are picked and aged, then soaked in a wash of limes, sugar water and rare spices from the Summer Islands. The leaves are then discarded, but the liquid is kept and thickened with ash and allowed to crystallize. It turns a deep purple color.

It Must Be Believed to Be Seen - Douglas Hodge (Willy Wonka)
(2013 Original London Cast)
*Feel free to delete this text if you reblog and don’t like my ramblings:
I’m not overly fond of this musical, I’m too in love with the movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder (he will always be Wonka for me) and the book of course. A bit biased I know. I don’t particular like the Tim Burton film either or the Leslie Bricusse musical. Even if Bricusse kept the songs from the 1971 movie and added a few more plus changed it a bit for the stage to fit the source material better I guess. I still think the film is much better. But like I said, I’m pretty biased regarding Gene Wilder and Willy Wonka.
But this song… This song is so good! It’s like a seduction song. A bit creepy but Wonka is all about the creepiness so it works for me. (I also have to confess I did cry when I heard him sing “Pure Imagination” on the cast album as well, ah childhood memories…)
why you did the things you did for me

Watching Sunday in the Park with George, with a huge box of tissues beside me, because I can’t stop crying. It’s such a beautiful musical, and Bernadette and Mandy are wonderful together, with their fantastic singing voices.

I’m just going to post this after seeing the latest episode of Hannibal.

and you will go to mykonos,
with a vision of a gentle coast,
and a sun to maybe dissipate,
shadows of the mess you made…
