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 :)

Traveling along on a business trip and while there is plenty to do during the day, at night it was a treat to go to the movies. It was a nice two hour escape.

I grew up in the theater, so am very critical of shows, and loved this one! Acting was fantastic, stage was very cool, and location was centralized if you are interested in going after a day of touring.

This is a small, comfortable and clean theatre. Every production I have attended has been extremely good quality sets and acting. Not Broadway or West End quality but then the price is much less! It is like an English oasis if your German is not good.....

A great little theatre, particularly if you are home sick. British/US plays and productions including Shakespeare. Nice part of town too.

I recently visited this theatre with my wife and some friends to see a production with which we were all already familiar. We left at the interval though, as the language being used was obscene and uncalled for! When we raised that with the staff, we were told that this is how people in England and America speak.
