Romeo and Juliet, Berlin, Germany

Hello friends of the theatre!

My name is Samantha Jones and I'm a big fan of theatre plays which is why I've decided to start this blog and tell you something about my favourite plays

I've seen a couple of plays recently and my favourite one was definitely "Romeo and Juliet" which I saw in a small theatre in Berlin, Germany. The performance was in Elizabethan English which I really appreciated since it was more authentic than other (modern) adaptations I had seen before. The genuine costumes and the stage design made you feel like you had travelled through time as well! What surprised me was that the quality of the acting was so excellent despite of the theatre being relatively unknown!!

It was really disappointing though that there was only a very small audience. There should have been more advertising for this play, but of course, taking into account the financial straits of the producers, you couldn't expect too much...

Dear friends of the theatre, please: do go and watch plays in smaller theatres, they often turn out to be far better than you expected and I promise that you will have wonderful evenings!!!

I agree absolutely!!

I also appreciate the great atmosphere of smaller theatres, smaller audiences!

I've seen the play as well and really liked it. Besides that Berlin is such a beautiful city. I went there at christmastime.

Yeah, you're right...There's always a special and personal atmosphere in smaller theatres...but I haven't seen Romeo and Juliet so far. Does anybody go there with me?

Dear bardolaters,
Yes, I am also a Shakespeare lover and adore plays perfomed in Elizabethan English. Since I was a child I have been enjoing the sound of this beautiful language with its fascinating rhymes and alliterations!

I won't miss the chance to ask if anyone's interested in joining my Shakespeare group performing and reciting the most famous Elizabethan plays, not only in their entirety, but also in genuine Elizabethan languange?

I'm looking forward to your responds!

You're absolutely right!

I went to the theatre of Siegen in Germany which is also not the greatest :-)
I watched "Emilia Galotti" and was enthralled by what the actors did on that pretty small stage! What also fascinated me was how they managed to create atmosphere on stage with just a few requisites...

Hi Samantha,

which theatre did you go to? Maybe I know it, because I am from Berlin! So I could see the play during holidays, too.

Hi folks!

Those of you who like Goethe as well, should have a look at the repertoire of the Apollo Theatre in Siegen. Until 28 April 2009, the relatively small theatre shows Goethe's tragedy "Faust". I really recommend this play to all of you!
The small theatre in general and a subsequent casual discussion with the actors in particular make your visit to the theatre unforgettable!
So check out

hey sam,
i know the problem of smaller theatres having not enough audience to play for - and it`s SUCH A SHAME!!!
