Booked in advance, but was not full. Very atmospheric, and not expensive. Got there early as suggested, and sat at the back in small theatre where the seats are raised to give a good view. Also did not want to see how it was done, which might have done in front row? Small cast and those behind the scenes put... More

We were recommended to come this show by our Czech tour guide as apparently this was the original and best Black Light Theatre. The show itself was very cleverly done and I couldn't see the other performers moving the lights at all! Very impressive and at times funny. Would go back if I was visiting Prague!

The show was very well orchestrated - seemless switch between 'black' and 'light' movements. Good humor. We were very entertained. The show is equally suitable for children and teens - of course some 'jokes' are only to be comprehended by adults but I'm sure children would find it intriguing and mind blowing.

The theatre is tiny, with no air circulation at all - not even a fan. With a full crowd, the inside was extremely hot. The seating is chairs, placed in rows. We watched Antologia, and found the performance amateurish, at best. We were able to see all the movements on stage, the manipulation of the props - hands were visible... More

I had heard about Black Light Theater for years and wanted to be sure to see this art form while in Prague. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, I chose this company and I'm glad I did as they did not disappoint. I saw the "Antologia" show and really enjoyed it. The show consists of short scenes of mimes with objects flying... More

We saw "Antologia" there. The room is very little, but well decorated. At the beginning of the performance, it was full, and they even added 4 more seats. Apart from the first scene, when the actress has no presence, the performance is very good. Actors are expressive and marionnetists very good. To my mind, the format of the show (little... More

Small and intimate setting made it more interesting. Loved some of the acts especially 'The Suite case".

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

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.
