Overview

Lorensbergsteatern is the elegant theater by Lorensberg with four big white columns framing the palatial entrance. The theater opened in 1916 with A Dream Play by renowned Swedish dramatist August Strindberg. It was the most modern theater in the country, with Sweden's first rotating stage and a lighting system that was so innovative for its time that the audience likened it to a revolution in light. In 1934, Lorensberg started showing films instead. The theater company moved to Stadsteatern, where they stayed until 1987 when Lorensberg again became a playhouse. It was the comedy shows Galenskaparnaand After Shave that reconsecrated this as a theatrical venue, and since then there's been a steady stream of plays, shows and musicals here. The theater lies slightly obscured behind the Main Library, but in a very central location close to Götaplatsen. For hours, repertoire and tickets, see their website.
