History of the Theater Amsterdam.
Originally the Theater Amsterdam was built exclusively for the stageplay 'Anne', which had its world premiere on May 8, 2014.
The play showed the life of Anne Frank before and during her hiding period in the house at Prinsengracht (now the Anne Frank House).
The stageply was intended to last for many years, but by the end of 2015 the demand had dwindled too much, so that the play had to be terminated.
The stageplay was in Dutch, but specially prepared iPads were available for the audience (with earplugs), which provided translations to several languages, including English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese and Russian.
After the Anne Frank stageplay closed down in January 2016, there have been a few other shows in the theater, apparently not with much success. The venue can now also be rented for private events. Occasionally, there are stil plays, musicals or other shows.
