A compact theatre gets you close to the stage We saw Ghost and it was a fine performance which saw some players surpass the quality of the big screen version. Very talented. The bar, snacks and general ambiance provided for a memorable evening.

I travelled from the UK to see the show and it was well worth the journey. The cast was utterly superb, with leading lady Hannah Grover delivering an exceptional performance both in terms of character acting and faultless vocals - utterly believable and natural in the role. A genuine pleasure to watch. Other notable cast members were the talented lady... More

Went to the musical "Ghost", was an outstanding performance. Get there when the doors open and have a post-performance drink. You can also call ahead to reserve a small meal, to have doing intermission.

Absolutely first class, watched a classic Hitchcock performance Strangers on a Train . The lighting effects was magnificent as was the cast. 6 encores can't be wrong.

The English Theatre needs no comment than this: it's always fully booked, so if you really want to be sure you don't miss an amazing show, be sure you book 3-4 months in advance! Tip: Season ticket might help you save some money if you are really passionate about theatre and you do want to see all the plays performed... More

I enjoyed an evening in my native language while in Frankfurt, and was wholly entertained by this well-mounted production. I would certainly return to ET when next in Frankfurt

Recently saw the production of "Strangers on a train". The cast did a remarkable job. They were all believable and the show had me on the edge of my seat. The venue is great, a nice cozy theater. We sat up front but I do not think that there is a bad seat in the house. It is only a... More

Been here several times. It's always been a good experience. Theatre is in good condition. Staff is friendly and helpful. Even though actors are not top professionals, they do a good job. Selection of plays are on the safe side, focusing on classics like The importance of being Ernest, Saturday night fever and Strangers on a train. They are all... More

Didn't know this was here but our daughter found it. We saw 'Strangers on a Train' - bit corny but it was well done and great for us since we speak no German! Not sure why it's in Frankfurt but the spce is nice and the bar is very good value so I'm glad it is. There's a 'book swap'... More

Nice quaint theatre Situated entirely in the beasement of a building Tickets ranged between 27Euros to about 40Euros. I was there two weeks ago and the play was a hit with the audience applauding for a full 5minutes :)
