    • The Swedish production in 2002 featured Helen Sjöholm as Florence and Anders Ekborg as Freddie; they had previously played the (less dysfunctional) lead couple of Kristina and Karl-Oskar in Kristina fran Duvemala, also written by Andersson and Ulvaeus. Tommy Körberg also reprised his original role of Anatoly.
  • Hey, It's That Guy's Brother: Murray Head, brother of Anthony Stewart Head, played Freddie in the 1980s West End production, and performs "One Night in Bangkok" on the album. Anthony Stewart Head himself played Freddie in the West End near the end of its run.
