I'm pretty excited this court case ruling has moved Kristina one step closer to a Broadway opening!
It looks more likely that Kristina — by ABBA songwriters Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson — will head to broadway increased after the duo won a recent court decision.
The dispute is between the duo and the writer who wrote the first draft of the show. Which according to the duo was unusable and that director Lars Rudolfsson and playwright Jan Mark had to write an alternative version.
The show's plot is based on four novels by Swedish author Vilhelm Moberg. Kristina from Duvemala premiered at the Malmo Music Theatre on Oct. 7, 1995, and has transferred to Gothenburg's Opera House and to Stolkholm's Cirkus Theatre. (more from playbill.com)Previously:
