About the Theatertreffen Festival

Every year in May, Germany’s most important theater festival brings together theater-makers, journalists and guests from all over the world in Berlin. The centrepiece of the Theatertreffen is formed by the ten “most notable productions,” which are chosen every year by an independent jury of critics from a possible 400 performances of the season. Most shows (if not all) will have English subtitles. The full festival schedule of performances will be announced in late March.

Included Features

  • Tickets to 6-8 shows, to be finalized in April when the Festival schedule is announced
  • 7 days and 6 nights at a five star hotel in the heart of Berlin with daily breakfast
  • Selected group dinners and lunches
  • Educational enrichment opportunities with Howard Shalwitz and Berlin theater artists and experts
  • Nightly “Fireside Chats” with Howard to reflect on the shows and artist meetings
  • Selected sightseeing trips
  • And more!
