Fröken Julie - The Musical

The Royal Dramatic Theatre, Stockholm.

Charlotte Engelkes and Andreas Rothlin Svensson. Engelkes version of Miss Julie by August Strindberg was an international succes when opening in Hamburg Schauspielhaus 2002. Now Miss Julie - The Musical is guestplaying at Dramaten in Stockholm. Music: Johan Berke, Charlotte Engelkes.

"Hon (Charlotte Engelkes) och Rothlin Svensson är mitt i knasigheterna den finaste duo jag sett på Dramaten på länge. De uttrycker kärlekens tafatthet och åtrå, individens eviga vankelmod och närhetens ensamheter, så man faktiskt hade kunnat gråta om man inte varit så upptagen med att skratta."
- Expressen. Full review:

"Charlotte Engelkes är en urkraft. Hon hoppar över tvivel, gränser och behärskning. Engelkes kliver rakt genom alla typer av förbud och tabun. Hon är ett rödhårigt utropstecken som går som en vass kniv genom allt hon ger sig på med sin blandning av performancekonst, burlesk och dans."
