Press review

Mona Levin, Aftenposten:

"Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking has turned 60 years, and is celebrated at The National Theatre's main stage in a performance that is beautiful to the eye, musically spreading joy and near abundant with energy."

IdaLou Larsen, scenekunst.no:

"A human Pippi... In every way it is an impressive Pippi Longstocking The National Theatre has made. Not least is it delightful to meet Henriette Steenstrup as Astrid Lindgren's very best known heroine."

Andreas Wiese, Dagbladet:

"...the vulnerability of the otherwise strong Pippi character is highlighted, a girl with a mother in heaven and a father on pirate adventures gets the room to be lonely and vulnerable as directed by Marit Moum Aune. The outsider is strong, but being different has its price. This is a dangerous balance, but it keeps up."
