Himmel und Kölle – Das Köln-Musical

In the organizer's words:

For Cologne residents and everyone who loves Cologne!

Heavenly, sexy and really Cologne: The young priest Elmar is transferred from the Swabian province to Cologne. In the course of a single wild night, the Catholic model student forgets all the commandments ... After a sinful trip through shisha bars and breweries Elmar has to realize: Against a Saturday night in Brussels Square, Sodom and Gomorrah was an oasis of calm.

"A rousing, funny good mood piece" writes the Welt am Sonntag about Himmel und Kölle, "A mega show," says Eko Fresh. Cologne voted the song "Dat ruckelt sich zurecht" to 3rd place at Loss mer singe, at the German Musical and Theater Award 2021 the musical was awarded in 4 categories: Best Ensemble Performance, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Producer.

The authors Dietmar Jacobs and Moritz Netenjakob make a biting declaration of love to the city of Cologne full of wordplay and jeföhl. The two Grimme Prize winners have been working very successfully for many years in television, theater and as book writers. Their 2019 play Extrawurst is currently the most-staged play on German stages. Both wrote for Stromberg, Pastewka, Anke, Switch and many other formats. Cologne residents know the authors from Mitternachtsspitzen or the Stunksitzung. At the traditional Volksbühne am Rudolfplatz, director Gil Mehmert (including Das Wunder von Bern, Wüstenblume, Goethe!) is staging the first Cologne musical, for which Andreas Schnermann has exclusively composed the music.

We're still waiting for the opera - Himmel und Kölle is already here. Let's go!
