Grips Theater, Berlin

4.8
#146 of 400 in Nightlife in Berlin
The Grips-Theatre in Berlin (official name: GRIPS Theater) is a well-known and well-respected emancipatory children's and youth theatre, located at Altonaer Straße at Hansaplatz in the Hansaviertel in Berlin's Mitte district. It is “the first theatre worldwide to deal sociocritically with the lives and living conditions of children and young people and to incorporate this in original humorous and musical plays”. It has gained a national and international reputation, not least due to its former artistic director Volker Ludwig's musicals for adults, such as its evergreen Linie 1, Café Mitte or the adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. GRIPS’ plays have been re-staged over 1,500 times in some 40 languages around the world.

  • Great theater for kids. Progressive, alternative, intelligent, creative. Their all time classic: "Linie 1" (with English subtitles)
  • Great little theatre. Price is quite expensive to get in if you pay full price at the door. We went to see a German musical Linie 1 and we loved the set up. Even in the side seats you had a good view. It's clean, New and comfortable and right beside the u bahn at hansaplatz and the s bahn bellvue. Worth a visit if you want to see a smaller production whilst in Berlin. We rate this theatre more highly than the bigger Berlin theatres. We will definitely be back.
