This wonderful building situated close to Kurfürstendamm and the zoo is really one theatre that is outstanding. The architecture is marvelous and grand, and it really gives you the great feeling of the old opera houses. Currently Stage Entertainment owns and runs the theatre, and they've really put an effort in keeping the theatre fresh and up to a good... More

We have not read the book, seen the English theatrical version or the English language film so this was our first and only exposure to the play (musical) in November 2013. The puppetry was good. The acting however left lot to be desired. It felt like a play on acid. It did feel very over acted by most of the... More

Tanz der Vampire is a phenomenal German music production playing in Berlin. As my sister went to see this musical years ago and bought a CD, I thought I know what to expect. However, it was above and beyond my expectations. The musical is telling a tragic love story from different perspectives (the immortal vampire who lost all his lovers... More

I visited the Theater des Westens to watch Tanz der Vampire - my first German musical. It was just brilliant and now in my top 5 favourite shows. We had seats quite near the back but we could still see everything. The theatre itself is really lovely and has lots of space for milling around before the show and to... More

This is a great old theater and we had a blast at TANZ DER VAMPIRE (Roman Polanski's masterpiece) - another great show from Stage Entertainment. Even though the show is a little campy (which they are fully aware of), the production value of this show will blow you away. The choreo, the set design, the costume, the talent on stage...... More

We went there to see Tanz der Vampire, from Roman Polanski. The theater is great, very well kept and luxurious. Before you enter the show there is a bar that offers drinks and snacks. The restrooms are excellents. If you are in the mesanine it's even better. During the interval you have shorter lines both to the bar and the... More
