Owner description: The Cimrman Theater celebrates its 50th season in 2016. Now you have the unique opportunity to experience his work in English. Many Czechs consider his plays untranslatable but our productions prove all the nay sayers wrong. Despite the fact that Jára Cimrman is a fictitious character, in 2005 a majority of Czechs named him the Greatest Czech in a nation-wide poll. Our performances take place in the Cimrman Theater with the original set and costumes. The cast is composed exclusively of professional, native-English speaking actors. Like Monty Python is for English-speakers, any Czech can quote Jára Cirman, so learn some of his catch phrases too!
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Theatre introduces a Czech phenomen Jara Cimrman, who lived in Austrian Hungarian Empire and was behind many important world changing but also some silly inventions. There is a whole culture about this great guy and leader of the Czech nation, shame that he was borned just in two heads of famous Czech actors and composers Sverak and Smoljak.
They wrote many theatre plays about Cimrman and numerous slogans became house sayings in Czech families.
The group of elderly actors play in the theatre with a great vitaly and are nearly always sold out.
