After the Komödie am Kurfürstendamm has been a guest at the Schiller Theater for over four years, Martin Woelffer and his crew will be playing at the Theater am Potsdamer Platz starting in March 2023.
Theater and Komödie am Kurfürstendamm belong to the most famous private theaters in Berlin and are located directly at the Ku'damm in Berlin-Charlottenburg.The famous director and intendant Max Reinhardt opened the Theater am Kurfürstendamm in 1921 in the former rooms of the Berliner Sezession, where impressionists such as Max Lieberman were working. The designs for the reconstruction were created by the famous theatre architect Oskar Kaufmann.
The program is famous for sophisticated, urban entertainment theater; comedies, boulevard plays, shows, concerts, musicals and lectures, staged classical or modern, serious or funny, are part of the repertoire and always stand out with national or international stars. In the 2017/2018 season, Desirée Nick or the Comedian Harmonists played at Theater am Kurfürstendamm for instance. The comedy seats 607, and the theater seats 807 people.
The houses, which are important parts of Berlin’s theater scene, look back on an inconsistent history but have consistently been under the direction of the Woelffer family since 1950.
