We saw the 75 minute version of the Icelandic Sagas. The show had two actors that were quite good and funny. There was active participation with the audience and I would say that everyone enjoyed the show. It was a lighthearted look at the history...More

This show is a very original and comical romp through the Icelandic sagas. At 75 minutes, it was the perfect length. Well done to the actors and writers! A very enjoyable introduction to Icelandic sagas and history -- we really enjoyed it!

Great evening out in Reykjavik's iconic "Harpa" Theatre Centre. This dramatization of the 150 sagas in 75 mins was superbly crafted. From the modern scripting of Icelandic human history (are we surprised it was bloodthirsty and strewn with feuds and blood rivalries??) to the high...More

I was at Saga Hits yesterday and it was just what I expected. Not so long, funny and a little bit instructive. If you are tourist and you want some activity for your evening in Reykjavik, just go there.

"Icelandic Sagas The Greatest Hits” is not a theater performance, but rather a stand out, interactive, low quality show. It was crude, shallow, obscene, stuffed with cheap jokes and geared towards insulting Americans.More
