I had high hopes for a black light show that was titled "Frankenstein." While the lighting was interesting and the props, costumes etc. were handled well with the black light, the show was something from a bad dream. The best description was Frankenstein meets Dracula while going around the world in 80 days. Don't waste your time or money.

I was really looking forward to seeing this show- we reserved our tickets online and when we arrived we were told they had sold out. But they made us wait ages before informing us of this ! And considering we were going home the next day really upset our evening! Plus they didn't suggest any alternatives and left us standing... More

We are sorry to hear that. However, when making the reservation you are advised to pick up your reservation 30 minutes before the show at the latest so we can re-sell the tickets if the demand is high. Unfortunatelly, that is what we had to do in your case. More

We went to this theater with another couple. The theater is small and intimate. The show was almost all pantomime so everybody of every language could enjoy it. It was cleverly done and a bit simplistic, but still enjoyable.

Went with a couple of friends to visit this theatre after seeing their flyer in the prague information centre. Having a theatre background we were quite intrigued by this production. We were not dissappointed. It was entertaining and the actors as well as the others who worked at the bar and the door were so passionate and it made this... More

I absolutely hate mime, so I was not really looking forward to this, but when in Prague, do as the tourists do! In the event we really quite enjoyed the show, the actors were excellent and the little skits were funny, its broad humour I know, but the violinist had me laughing out loud. Be aware its a tiny theatre,... More

We went to the "Antologia" performance. It contains of several separate scenes (the horse, the magician, the suitcase and so on). There are actors on the stage, very skilled in pantomime and dancing. Behind them things are happening (moved by the "black actors" which you can not see). I liked the acting - the use of facial expressions, the dance... More

There is probably nothing better than Prague it is amazing with its culture art and history and food and people but please note the black light theater is very poorly done. if you live or are from a metropolitan area and are used to good theater this is the opposite of that. This was a choice between Seeing an Aria... More

To be honest, I wasn't really sure about the black light theater. I had the feeling that it was a touristy thing. We checked the alternatives and this one (Srnec) had good reviews. We gave it a chance. And it was much better than what I thought! The theater is quite small and the seats (basic chairs) are just ok.... More

This was an enjoyable show the whole family could enjoy. It was fun to see something different that a Hollywood movie or Broadway theater production - this is small and personal.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
