The musical De Tocht ends on June 30 and that is final. About 300,000 visitors came to the specially built Friso Theater, spread over approximately 300 performances.

These are impressive numbers, and marketing director Foppe van der Veen is more proud than disappointed. “Just to hit mysels on the chest, but that’s it unknown what we serve ha.”

And then stop anyway. This is mainly due to the ticket-buying public, which has started to behave very differently since corona. No more chasing tickets months in advance, but making the choice to leave the house two or three weeks before. “The risk is too great.”

Fragile and super capricious

This development is not only a tease The trip , the entire theater and events industry has to deal with it. Van der Veen: “The Minsken wolle heel did not enjoy the theater, but decided to attend the full concert fan. It is very fragile, the brand is super quirky.”

That makes it perfect for such a show with an ‘open ending’, such as The trip , difficult. “Kinst just foarútsjen on his bline eagen. Most of all, there is sincerity here cast the crew the suppliers.”

It is not yet clear what will happen to the Friso Theater, initially built especially for this production. Or The trip has turned a profit or a loss, neither. “As the coming trio moanne gjin kop mear comes, strike it net.”

It is now over forever The trip or can we ever expect a revival or something like that? “That’s as good as it gets: will there be anything in Alvestêdetocht? That’s just plain obvious.”
