The entire Græsted Revue has been canceled just one week before the premiere.

This is confirmed by René Richardt – who together with his wife owns Græsted Kro, where the revue, which he himself should have played in, is located. This is confirmed to BT

‘Our actor John Batz has sadly gone down with stress and anxiety. We have tried to get a replacement, but it is difficult when we are so far into the revue season, and we play as long as we do, “explains René Richardt.

The premiere should have been on Friday next week, and from there the revue should have run until September 30th.

So it obviously hurts the wallet to have to cancel the award-winning revue, the innkeeper explains with a sigh.

‘I have spent many hours repaying all the people who have bought tickets. It was heavy, for they had been looking forward to coming, and certainly also to seeing that number get smaller and smaller. We have an inn that will lack 3000-4000 guests, “says René Richardt.

Fortunately, there has been distinguished support from the country’s many other revues.

For René Richardt and his wife Vibe, the canceled revue had a new problem – namely a three-month gap in the calendar for Græsted Kro.

‘There is hardly a single revue that has not called and offered their help. Some will come and perform, and others will do it for almost nothing and will just help and try to make sure to keep this workplace, so it has been great. “


René Richardt, Trine Appel and John Batz were the acting team in Græsted Revue 2022, which has now been canceled.

Therefore, both August and September’s replacement entertainment such as lectures and concerts at the inn are already almost in place.

But that in itself does not ensure the survival of the historic inn.

“We are confident in the sense that we hope for the full support of everyone who likes Græsted Revue and Græsted Kro,” explains René Richardt.

“But it is clear that when we have just had a couple of years with corona, and we are dealing with this now as well, then you get a little shaken and get a little stomach ache.”

But there is still plenty of hope and fingers crossed in the North Jutland station town, so according to the revue actor, it is hopefully now that it starts to lighten up again.
