Theatres in Frankfurt
English language theatres
The English Theatre in Frankfurt was founded more than 30 years ago and is continental Europe’s largest English-speaking theatre. It gained recognition and much acclaim due to its highest professional standards of production and has also become a meeting point for the many nationalities that live in Mainhattan. The shows are usually cast in New York or London, where also initial rehearsals take place before the actors are brought to Frankfurt. Each production has a new cast, and all shows are produced by the English Theatre itself. The programme comprises a wide range of classics, comedies, thrillers and musicals, and the theatre sees more than 60.000 visitors each season. It seats 300, and together with the James bar, with its plush furniture, spreading over two floors, has a really nice and unique atmosphere any theatre fan shouldn't miss.
The International Theatre Frankfurt features plays in several different languages (English, Italian, Spanish, French, Russian and others) and intends to bring a little piece of home to people from various cultural communities living in Frankfurt but also to show these cultures to everyone else. The theatre hosts 150 events per year and displays a huge variety - check out the website to find out more about the current programme and to buy tickets.
