Don't miss out on Munich theaters

Looking for a “cultural” way to improve your German? Then check out the variety of offerings available at theaters across Munich. This month, for example, the Kammerspiele (Maximilianstrasse 26–28, will stage productions ranging from Tschechow’s Der Kirschgarten to Robinson Cruso, die Frau und der Neger, based on the novel Foe by J.M.Coetzee. And, in addition to a must-see production of Hamlet and Othello, such classics as Die Bakchen by Euripides and Schiller’s Räuber are sure to delight. Those who can appreciate Michel Houllebecq should not miss the scenic transformation of his Elementarteilchen. The obligatory football-related program will also be included here: the show Männer—Ein Fussball Liederabend by Franz Wittenbrink. Those who prefer more workshop-type performances, readings, background discussions and experimental theater should check out the offerings at the Kammerspiele’s second stage, the Werkraum. Or, catch performances at the Residenztheater, or, as the locals call it “Resi,” located on the other side of Maximilianstrasse (Max-Joseph-Platz 1) Here, you can enjoy Goethe’s Stella, Shakespeare’s Mass für Mass or Der Kaufmann von Venedig, Becket’s Warten auf Godot, or some native Munich pieces by Franz Xaver Krötz, Gerhard Polt and the Biermöslblasen. You will never be bored at the Resi, and you won’t be taxed by too much experimental theater. See <<<
