Foreign names: Kohlhaas -> Kholhaas

This has been down the tube a few times, but I still find it quite noteworthy that neither the El País theatre critic Javier Vallejo nor the Madrid Círculo de Bellas Artes, hosting the show, manage to copy the name of Heinrich von Kleist's protagonist correctly. Anyone would think they don't give a monkey's. Maybe the after-show drinks are the main item.

Hilarious, the Círculo did 3 consecutive tweets two days ago, with 3 different versions of the name: Kholhaas, Kolhlaas and kohlhaas.
