Schaubuhne am Lehniner Platz
This former 1920s cinema and Bauhaus construction is now a highlight on Berlin’s cutting-edge theatre scene. The programme features contemporary drama and dance productions from young international playwrights with an emphasis on contemporary British drama (Mark Ravenhill, Sarah Kane, Martin Crimp and others). At the helm is internationally acclaimed director Thomas Ostermeier and some works are presented in German with English subtitles (check local listings or the Schaubühne’s website). After-show drinks can be taken in the fashionable theatre cocktail bar, the Universum Lounge.
