Ohnsorg Theater, Hamburg

4.4
#44 of 151 in Nightlife in Hamburg
The Ohnsorg Theater in Hamburg, Germany is a stage run after the British system of repertory theatre with up to six produced plays per season. Plays are exclusively performed in Plattdeutsch and play a major role in spreading the knowledge and, in recent times, renewed appreciation of this minority language. Exceptions in Hochdeutsch are only made for television broadcasts. These broadcasts on the regional NDR network for Northern Germany and on the nationwide ARD network have made the theatre and its former main star Heidi Kabel popular in many parts of Germany and beyond.

Although mostly famous for its comedies, the majority of them set in the typical environment of Northern German farmers, fisher men or merchants from Hamburg, the theatre also performs more serious works of traditional literature and musical theatre as well as adaptations in Platt of international material such as the stage version of Stephen King's Misery and original plays such as Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Robert Thomas's 8 Women, Willy Russell's Shirley Valentine, Lawrence Roman's Alone Together or Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

  • Great old school german speaking theatre. You are in for a good laugh, even before the performance starts the servers at the bar have always have a good joke up their sleeves. Great facilities to have a drink and a snack before performance starts and in the break. Seats are comfortable and generously spaced. View to the stage is good you can follow everything well.
  • This is the most important institute of northern mainstream humor applied to theater. Highly popular, if only you could understand enough northern style German, with that local hamburger twist. Deeply rooted in local traditional behavior it gives you a glimpse into the mechanics of northern Germany jokes and sitcoms.
