Frankfurt’s English Theatre was founded in 1979 by Kevin Oakes from South Africa and Jon Johnson, Mary Jackson and Ken Elrod from the United States. Kevin Oakes became the theatre’s artistic director.

In 203, it moved into its current state-of-the-art, 300-seat home, sponsored by the Dresdner Bank. The theatre is now the largest English-language theatre on the European continent. We took in their production of Pygmalion with a minimalist set and good acting. The audience was young and, of course, they all spoke German. Interesting to see such interest in an English play. The lounge where one could get a drink was cool with neat vibes. Looking at the list of their previous productions you can’t help but feel impressed.

For the music lovers, they have great shows! We watched Dr. Jekyll and Hyde, very emotional and impressive! My friend and I both love it! It's relatively a small theater but with cozy atmosphere. No super fancy settings or stage, but the actors were excellent! Some of them even played instruments themselves. Great show, good place to visit!

this place is the only English speaking theatre in Frankfurt, therefore it is the best. But that does not mean anything. I have seen far better productions on off-off-off Broadway for less money, better actors... If you really have nothing better to do in your life spend a fortune there...

If you don't speak (or like) German, this is the place to go if you happen to find yourself in Frankfurt and wanting to watch some theatre. The place is centrally located and the performers are usually very good, which will make for a nice experience. Inside the theatre the space is cosy and comfortable.

Apart from theatre itself, this space is also known for hosting some parties in the bar located inside.
