Let's call it a year. Recovering from the pandemic episode, home alone, only connected via Video Calls, (more or less) entertained by living room concerts instead of spending a night out at the theatre, we got the opportunity to enjoy various shows over Austria and Germany. We returned to the theatre, enjoying the atmosphere, the smell, and everything a night out offers.

Retrospecting 2022, here is my TOP TEN List of shows I got the chance to witness in the German Speaking area.

  • THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW TOUR is an entertainingly bad and bizarre production with probably the Best Opening Night date ever! (The Show opened in Vienna on my birthday, what a lovely present!)
  • TITANIC THE MUSICAL, an emotional evening presented by the wonderful Musical Ensemble Linz, congenial directed by Simon Eichenberg.
