Some of you might have heard that the Copenhagen Post is in trouble, and it’s true that we need to make a lot of changes over the next year to find a viable business model. Despite operating forever with limited resources, we need to spend even less money, although we will of course be trying to make more as well.

So this means that this is the penultimate edition of InOut in its current format. It will return in the spring as a monthly edition, but just in case we take a break and don’t publish any material in March (from the edition that comes out on February 28, the newspaper will become a 24-page edition with a small section dedicated to InOut material), here is an overview of what we have to look forward to. (Being March, there’s never really that much.)

Starting on May 6, Why Not Theatre Company is staging Wit, an acclaimed play by Margaret Edson. The run will last for 16 days. Also early in the month, look out for ABBA the Show (March 1, 2 and 4) and the Pulsar Festival (March 6-12), and don’t forget it is Fastelavn on March 2.

Leading the way in mid-March is the Chocolate Festival (March 8-9) and the Arena Circus (March 14-April 13), while the Shamrock Inn is celebrating its 25th anniversary on March 15.

St Patrick’s Day (March 17) is on a Monday this week, but that won’t put us off from celebrating it in style, and it’s just as well because it looks quiet otherwise.

Indeed, beyond Floor Wars (March 15), Republique’s performance of Anne Frank (March 16-29) and Mike Tyson, Undisputed Truth (March 30), it would have been a struggle getting an issue out anyway!

Returning to the week ahead, English-language theatre fans are spoilt for choice, with God of Carnage  and The Snow Queen, and don’t forget that Valentine’s is coming up on Friday.

But just because I’ll be saying goodbye to my one true love next week: you, the reader … for a month or two, don’t be expecting any unsigned cards. After all, on any other day of the year, they would call that stalking.
