Karlsson on the roof

I took Alexander to see the play of “Karlsson-on-the-roof” (“Karlsson på taket”) by Astrid Lindgren with Markoolio starring as Karlsson. What can I say.. the man was born to play this role. The role calls for something of a monkey-on-acid approach to acting, and Markoolio pulls it off.

Children from ages three to nine were there with their parents, and I think most of them had their eyes nailed to the stage throughout the whole play.

Nice, wonderful, well worth the cash; and a good break from the input of digital media.
