His counterpart Judas will be played by Gino Emnes,who will make his VBW debut.
KRAWUTZI KAPUTZI will get his well deserved revival in april at the Vindobona. It can be seen as the austrian Avenue Q. Kasperl, Petzi and co., all of them heros from our childhood, all of them now grownups (like the most of us) and struggling with daily life problems. It is hilarious, funny and „oh my god" full of explicit content
