“American pie”

Vienna's English Theatre
Ranked #209 of 607 things to do in Vienna
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We usually go to the English Theatre when we visit Vienna. Once again, the play was well cast and acted and the organisation slick. The small bar had only one server which meant that not everbody got a drink in the interval - fortunately, we were sitting at the back and were near the front of the queue.
For me, the play lacked bite and a decent ending which was a disappointment especially as the previous one had been side-splitting. I hope that this is a one-off as we will keep visiting.

We always visit when in Vienna, a side-splitting performance. Silly story, womanising temperamental Italian tenor, his jealous wife, an ambitious female singer, a star-struck fan and put-upon theatre gofer, two hotel rooms and lots of doors - all the ingredients needed for a great farce.
Couldn't decide whether the singing was real - it looked it. If so, the two principal men were fine singers. Opening and closing of doors was perfectly timed and the body language of the actors exceptional - probably necessary for locals as the English was fast and furious.
We haven't seen a poor performance on any of our visits, this one was exceptional

This is the oldest English language theatre on the continent of Europe and still one of the best if not the number one. The theatre itself is everything you expect in a grand old Viennese theatre building and of course comes with the amenities of a good bar area with drinks and snacks. Everyone who works there has always been super friendly and they have a great range of shows from classics to contemporary. Acting is usually first rate and occasionally a big name slips into Vienna to take the stage here. Vienna has literally dozens of other awesome theatres as well but for those fluent only in English, this should be near the top of your list .... except for perhaps one of the musicals they always have running in Vienna. Hey and the location is easy to get to , not far from the the Ringstrasse!

Out of Order, a political farce, is currently playing at Vienna's English Theatre. In it you will find not only live girls and boys misbehaving, but a BODY! And not a very well-behaved one at that. We had a great night at the theatre, which was full of people finding the play funnier and funnier.
