Comedy Theaters B.V. in Amsterdam
The majority of theaters and performance venues in Amsterdam can be found in Leidseplein, as it is known for being the intelligent and artistic hub of the city. It is recommended to stop by the box offices to see what performances are happening on the particular night you are out and about.
Having been performed regularly for more than a decade at venues like the Leidseplein Theater, Boom Chicago has become a staple in the Amsterdam performance community, and is a tried and true laugh riot. Other venues, perhaps more low key, include Comedy Café, where you can catch international stand-up acts, and Crea Muziekzaal Theater, where you can watch hilarious improvised humor from the Easy
Laughs comedy troupe.
But perhaps the two most important and high-profile performance venues in Amsterdam are the Muziektheater and the Stadsschouwburg (the Municipal Theater). Known as the most prestigious ballet and opera venue in the Netherlands, the Muziektheater is also renowned for hosting big-name singers and dancers from around the globe. With a remarkably beautiful interior, the Stadsschouwburg is the home base for Toneelgroep Amsterdam, the theatrical production company with a reputation for bold renditions of classical and modern plays alike.
