Sinatra Christmas | The Theatre, Sunday – Göteborgs-Posten

The Christmas Show

The Sinatra Christmas

The Theatre, Sunday

By: Christer Sjögren , Gunhild Carling and Andreas Weise

Public: 1400 of 1700 possible

Best: Sandviken Big Band with its impressive horn section

Worst: That everything is so rebuke added and predictably

An expectant murmur welcomes artists – the doyen Christer Sjögren, with its timeless velvety voice, jazzy whirlwind Gunhild Carling and the more stagnant singer Andreas Weise – on stage. What then begins is a surprising lazily intro with Gabby lots, jokes about the Viking Age “Hey young people” and the idol never go home. While it is surprising to hear Christer Sjögren be called a “sweet dromedary”. and quietly anxiety charged when Andreas Weise speak out about their Christmas celebration with father Arne on TV for thirty years. But the same Andreas shortly thereafter interprets Wham! -The Song Last Christmas time, I still wonder how it’s even possible to interpret such a bittersweet love ballad so anemic.

Christer Sjögren step out of the salon publikhav and sings in a round, illuminated small stage in the middle. It will be a technically perfect, but easy soporific version of Judy Garland paradlåt Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas from the 1940s film Meet Me in St. Louis.

Actually, the first when jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist Gunhild Carling enters the stage with his brilliant version of the 1930s Dangan Prisoner of Love including a brilliant trumpet polo, as the show really begins . She clown, dancing a little swing and tops it all with Louis Armstrong ‘Zat you Santa Claus where she shows that she also manages trombone with great finesse.

Christer Sjögren’s muffled bass dominates over Andreas Weises brighter tenor is sometimes a season, but now and then it becomes most painfully, as in Winter wonderland where Sjögren takes in the abdominal support and sings noticeably more powerful than his young protégé. Many small talk between them becomes protracted and somewhat laddish, at least twice on Gunhild Carling expense. She shows on the other hand, the show through which the enthusiastic jazz fan she is and gifted interpreter especially the 1920s and 1930s, jazzy sound.

Sandviken Big Band show what they can do through the evening, especially in instrumental Carioca before break.

Everything works otherwise so much better in the second act. Gunhild get with the audience on the swing course and play four-handed piano with big band Thomas Jutterström. In Boogie Woogie Santa Claus she tears in on harmonica, but the best is probably still her trumpet solo in Joan Javits, Philip Springer and Santa baby. Carling steals clearly this Christmas show. The nostalgia reaches its climax when Christer Sjögren and Andreas Weise together makes a languorous, but also really, really good version of As Time Goes By, Herman Hupfelds superhit who is also the theme song from the classic film Casablanca.

The show’s most bombastic scene is otherwise as Christer Sjögren takes in from the toes of O Holy Night. As an encore, he gives in addition the audience his favorite song: My way, with a surprising musical twist towards the end. Frankie-Boy theme is inoperative well as red thread in this stylish display that yet most seem to be for the converted.

Last year, Hakan Thörnström. On Monday evening, it was clear that the championship title in the Chefs struggle in TV4 re going to Gothenburg. This year’s winner is Gustav Tragardh, chef at Sjömagasinet.

Gustav Tragardh squirmed through the whole season without getting into såsduell once. He has appeared relaxed and almost reclined in a bunch with many winning call.

The tactics being hotheaded proved successful and this year’s winner of the Chefs struggle maintains that he is not a competitive person.

– It is clear that I wanted to win, but I had come second, I had been pretty pleased too. My children are not like that, but I am one, he says.

The program was filmed last summer and when we talked at Gustav Tragardh goes around in a sunny and mild Valencia, where he ran the marathon on Sunday.

– The final day was piss easy compared to that. Me and my buddy Martin tend to run a marathon together once a year. It’s funny, but I will never win any marathon.

The medal he received as a prize in Chefs battle hinges on Mr. Butler at home in the bedroom, along with the Chef of the Year award and the various marathon medals. Gustav Tragardh has no plans to acquire a trophy cabinet.

So you will not divide life into before and after winning chefs battle?

– Nehehej.

But how did it feel like when you had won?

– I’m not that emotional of me, but it was fun. As they stood and counted the points so I realized that this is the way.

Tell us about the finale of torque!

– In the first contest would scale crayfish, it suited me fine. Since one would share an animal, it was also good. Since one would chop vegetables and it went bad, I usually use the mandolin. But I was pleased with the win in two of the three branches.

Since settled it all with a classic three-course menu, where Gustav Tragardh pulled away and won by a good margin.

– I felt totally safe there. It’s one of the few things I’m really good at – cooking.

What was your opponent Frida Nilsson’s strongest side?

– Frida had enough sense of self to remain calm and stay away from såsdueller. Such as Jonas Dahlbom and Danyel Couet went for their sighted too hard on the victory, then you risk ending up in såsduell and where anything can happen. Frida’s strength was that she was so cool stayed away from that.

Was it a strategy on your part as well?

– Yes, it was a branch that I have not mastered so I aimed not at victory, but just to not end up in såsduell. The medal can take later.

And what tipped the scales in your favor in the finals?

– I guess I made food that pleased the jury better. I’m a few years older than Frida so I might have a little better idea of ​​what people like. On one such occasion, I aim wide and makes food that I know that many people think about.

When did you imagine that you would win?

– I immediately saw that it was good races for me. And when I saw the raw materials to the final race, I felt safe. This is my forum. I am good at classic cooking competitions and the poor in memory contests and guessing games. The final races of the last program suited me perfectly.

Has it been hard to keep quiet?

– Absolutely not. Just my wife and my children have known and they are as good as I am at keeping secrets. Loviisa, 11-year-old, told her cuddly toys and promised that it will not pass it on.

How will you celebrate?

– I know not. I’ll maybe take and open a little bubbly after I nattat kids tonight. Tomorrow it’s back to the pub and cook.

But since then, there has been both bleak and brutal. Stieg Larsson has taught us that men hate women, and Jens Lapidus how it really is everyone talking to the wrong side of the law. The color scheme has slowed to a “bridge” to become almost black and white.

“torpedoes” it’s almost like everything is in technicolor again. Bitwise appears Herngren series like the happier version of “Fast Cash” – complete with snälldum svenne dude (Torkel Petersson) who gets involved in bad things of a boss played by Dragomir Mrsic. It’s a bit predictable, but well crafted and energetically entertaining.

Last fall, however, I for two sedate gentlemen: Michael Segerstrom in the opening scene, and Magnus Härenstam as involuntary father to Sonny. Segerstrom so hot sighs heavily, and Härenstam is wonderful as grim upper class gentleman with pool and views. Two comic heavyweights who together form a needed counterweight to the lightweight feel of the ‘sunny side’ -bubbel.


Classic “Hassan” in -skämten ” partying “. Perfect 90′s nostalgia with Kristian Luuk.


If we can not put down “Café Bars” now. Please? Before I do anything rash.

On the web TV …

… I must soon begin to look at the “Kardashian”. Just because allmäbilda me a little about Kim.

Mia Skäringer | Wrong Mary – Gothenburg Post

The Pub Show

Mia Skäringer

Wrong Maria

Best: The more physical numbers when cutting Inger takes the whole hog.

Worst: Julskämten are predictable.

Audience: Crowded, standing ovations and many laughs.

Mia Skäringer is the new dinner show and follows on the success Dyngkåt and how sacred anywhere. She continues to tell the story of a “little girl with the inside to the outside” who only wanted to be seen and loved and did not hesitate to do violence to himself for a little confirmation.

Mia Skäringer doing really well. She can now control despite premiere nerves both the situation and the scene fully. What is new is that Mia Skäringer been with the band, conductor Stefan Sporsén leads the orchestra through songs by Olle Ljungström, Peter LeMarc, Håkan Hellström and finally Leonard Cohen. Mia Skäringer sing both tender and strong and choose to put aside the usually clear värmländskan.

But it’s not just dialect mask that makes it not really works to seamlessly move between monologue the verbiage and the romantic coat poetry. The terms vary too much.

Otherwise, feel the theme again, not only from Mia Skäringer but from other comedians that are at about the same place in life. And they are notoriously numerous. So it’s about social rules, mingle parties, everyday stress, time for yourself, troublesome sex life, småbarnsliv and so way too long party on Christmas celebration at home in Kristinehamn. Julångestskämten is hackneyed and predictable. I expect more sharpness, bitigare acid and greater willfulness of Mia Skäringer.

Then it’s more fun when she presses the “creative”, horny Hugo Rask-men and the very best is cutting Inger when she plays out physically as the aerobics session on the toilet and in the breakneck one night stand number.

Still, I think it gets too much sacrifice cardigan. Mia’ve all light on it, get our full and undivided attention. We love her. Well, it is clear that it pains especially when cutting Inger gives us hard snapshots from childhood, but I can not quite get it together vulnerable solitude of the reasonable adult problems of Solsidan character.

I would like to hear about how Mia Cut Inger turns from their own history, breaking the repetitions and stepping forward to admit that she took revenge and dare to proclaim himself as seriously loved, safe and successful. I want her to sign for his triumph rather than presenting itself as a “wimp, martyr and bitter cunt.”

In the end, actually the character Tabitha in and berates Mia Skäringer. It’s liberating.
