Drama & Theater in Hamburg

Hamburg's stage landscape is characterized by its diversity: There are impressive buildings with a long history such as the Deutsches Schauspielhaus or the Ernst Deutsch Theater, but there are also smaller stages such as the Kammerspiele and the MUT! Theater. And of course there are stages that are "typically Hamburch", like the Ohnsorg Theater with plays "op Platt", the Stars an der Reeperbahn, St. Pauli Theater and Schmidt Theater, and the Theaterschiff. The latest addition among the stages is the home of the play Harry Potter: the Mehr! Theater am Großmarkt.
