Post The Lorensbergs Theater
...I'm sorry if I'm out of place. I'm always out of place. Yeah... ...oh god I'm so sorry if I'm bothering anyone. However, my question, as my questions are always about, is about localization.

Little Shop Of Horrors (I think it went under the name of "En Hemsk Affär" at the time, sort of a pun, as it can both means "A Horrible Store" and "A Horrible Business") ran in Sweden for a while under 2008 at the Lorens Bergs Theater.

...now, I wonder, as I do with so buggering many things about these localization matters forgive me, if anyone among this crowd has seen this version. I'm expecting the answer "No, not really, go away you suck", but I'm asking anyway, as an act of pure optimism.

...Sorry. I just...really, really loved every single translated song. (And I was sort of wondering if anyone had the lyrics for them, for a possible school production. Especially "Jag Tänder på Tänder", which, translated punnily, would probably be something like "To Tell The Tooth" ((which is horrible, I know, I'm not punny, I'm sorry)), and translated directly would be something like "I Get Off On Teeth", except both 'teeth' and the slang word for 'get off' ((originally meaning 'ignite'. ...if anyone, y'know, wanted to know gonna stop now)) are the same, and...gonna shut up. Sorry. Just wanted to know. Just wanted to ask. Sorry.)
