Komödie am Kurfürstendamm

Traditional boulevard theatre, currently closed.

Please note: The Komödie am Kurfürstendamm is currently closed and will open on 12 March 2023 at the Theater am Potsdamer Platz. From 13 April onwards, performances will also take place in the Ernst-Reuter-Saal in Reinickendorf.


The Komödie am Kurfürstendamm  is situated on Berlin’s most famous boulevard and present sophisticated, entertaining and topical theatre.

The programme includes comedies, boulevard plays, shows, concerts, musicals and readings. Classical and modern, serious and hilarious – and always with an all-star cast.

Productions since the 1920s

The two venerable theatres have a varied history going back more than 90 years. Founded in 1924 by Max Reinhardt, they have been run by the Woelffer family ever since 1950. In those 90 years they have been through crises, been expropriated, even destroyed, and then finally rebuilt. The various directors have always been committed to the comedy genre – even if serious plays have sometimes been on the programme.

“For us, comedy has many facets. It’s a pleasure when we succeed in dusting off the classics. At the same time, we always look forward to premièring contemporary pieces. And we’re also proud that many British, French, American and Italian comedies have had their German premières at our theatre,” says the former director Jürgen Wölffer, who handed over the reins of the Ku’damm theatres in summer 2004 to his son Martin. He has carefully modernised the schedule and gained new audiences with plays like The Man Cave, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, As You Like It and The 39 Steps.
