Premiering Tonight: The Greatest Show in Iceland Starring Björk Guðmundsdóttir*

Published June 30, 2016

“It’s sort of like reality TV on stage, exaggerated and eye-catching,” says Vilhelm Neto, one of the actors in The Greatest Show In Iceland, Starring Björk Guðmundsdóttir*. The theatre production is performed and created by Krass, a group consisting of theatre students and aspiring actors. The show discusses matters such as whether or not Icelandic women are the most beautiful, whether Björk Guðmundsdóttir really is the best musician in the world or if Iceland really is the best country. A comedic performance, which tackles Iceland’s self image in a hilarious way, enjoyable by both locals and visitors.

The premiere is tonight at 20:30 at Tjarnarbíó. Buy tickets here. Admission is 3,500.
