The theatre will remain closed through the end of the season.

To help contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the Maxim Gorki Theatre's public events have been cancelled through the end of the 2019/20 season, so our stages will remain empty. These cancellations are based on the Berlin Senate’s decision to prohibit public events in theatres, and other venues, through July 31st, 2020.

In the wake of the likewise suspended rehearsals, all upcoming premieres have been postponed to the 2020/21 season for the time being – the premieres affected are Berlin Oranienplatz, Krampus: Pelz und Puderzucker and Schwarzer Block. We will announce the new dates on our website as soon as they've been set.

Until then, the Maxim Gorki Theatre is making one repertory production available for 24 hours from 6pm every Wednesday through the Gorki Stream (English subtitles available). Sporadic special digital performances will come up as well. We'll keep you updated on and through our newsletter.
