Read the reviews when planning our vacation and decided this had to be part of our trip. Iceland's cultural equivalent of the abridged Shakespear. A roller coaster story telling performance that is funny, fast moving, easy to follow and picks out the morals of each...More

Incredibly fun, exciting, and educational - we loved it and so did our teenage boys. Also, it was really a better, more memorable exposure to the sagas and the Icelandic folkloric culture than any museum we saw. Informal production with a really talented cast who...More

The show was a mix of comedy and history. A small theater assures great seats for all. The actors were insanely good and adept at selecting good natured audience members to help out with some audience participation. Go early and walk both inside and outside...More

Fun and funny show on the famous viking sagas. A lot of audience participation that adds to the fun. The show is in the Harpa which is right near many city center hotels.

This was, undoubtedly, one of THE funniest comedy shows we have seen. Appropriate for international audiences, families. Mercifully, not too PC. We laughed so hard, that we couldn’t catch our collective breaths. We highly recommend it!!

We attended this show with our 13-year-old son, and the content was entertaining, informative and age appropriate (imho), with fun audience participation. The time flew as the actors brought us the highlights of the 40 "sagas" in only 75 minutes. It's an intimate theater with...More
