  1. Everyone is invited to join the amazing women of Bake This English Improv Comedy!  We'll make fun of common stereotypes based on your suggestions, perceptions, and experiences to celebrate International Women's Day. We all need a good laugh right now, don't we?   WHEN: Wednesday, March 11 @20:00, Doors open at 19:00.  WHERE: Wirtshaus zum Isartal, Brudermühlstr. 2 ***Tickets ONLINE *** Great food and drink available in the theatre!      
  2. The more we go to English theatre at Deutsches Theater, the more English theatre and musicals they will bring!! So let's support them, and go see this great musical!  I've seen the English Theatre Frankfurt before and they are fantastic! There is a movie version of Sweeney Todd with Johnny Depp...might be fun to see before hand. I'm taking my teenagers with as well...Hope to see you there!      SWEENEY TODD The Demon Barber of Fleet Street Sondheims's Classic TICKETS 04.03.20 - 15.03.20 A CUTTING-EDGE PRODUCTION The eerily beautiful musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond is coming to our stage – in a production by the English Theatre Frankfurt and directed by Derek Anderson. RAZOR-SHARP ENTERTAINMENT An infamous tale of a Victorian-era barber Benjamin Barker, now Sweeney Todd, who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, with the help of Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, he opens a new barber shop where they plot a unique plan that leads them down a dangerous, thrilling path with deadly and delicious consequences. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun! BLOODY SUCCESSFUL The original Broadway production (1979) won no less than eight Tony Awards inclduding Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score. The cast soundtrack was awarded with a Grammy Award. In London, the original production and the revivals have accumulated ten Laurence Olivier Awards. Tim Burtons film adaptation (2007) with Johnny Depp in the title role and Helena Bonham Carter and Alan Rickman as Mrs. Lovett and Judge Turpin won two Golden Globes and an Oscar. DEVILISHLY CLOSE For 16 guests at a time, the performances in Munich will be a very special experience: Book one of our Bloody Seats and sit right on stage, devilishly close and in the middle of all the action! You will be equipped with a poncho to be prepared for shaving foam and other liquids used on stage. You will also receive a programme as well as a glass of sparkling wine – you can collect both before the performance at the bar on the left-hand side on the Stalls-level. There, the stage guests will be collected and brought to their seats. Tickets and more info at Website:

Food and Drink served in the theater. About Bake This: Bake This is Munich's English speaking, international improv comedy troupe. We've been mixing it up since 2011 and performing regularly. Our name, Bake This, derives from our original rehearsal space in a small bakery and reflects our diversity in blending comedy with serious theatrical elements. In addition to our monthly performances, Bake This has performed at TEDx, Germany’s Biggest English-German Comedy Show, the INTERACT fair at TUM Graduate School, Graduate School of Neurosciences at LMU, Süddeutsche Zeitung, The Bavarian International School, the Pädagogisches Institut München, and a variety of corporate events. Bake This loves to bake it big on stage, and if it can be belted out in song, even better - big emotions, big fun!
  5. Someone of facebooks parents in munich is organizing a large group, including trunk or treaters giving out candy from cars, who will be in my neighborhood. That’s all I know. Have fun!
  6. FYI - I will sadly not be participating this year. We will not be decorating the haunted house or organizing the Trunk-or-Treaters. I am managing an Improv Festival that kicks off on Halloween so I won't be around. Next year we will be back, bigger and better than ever before :-)   Have a Happy Halloween!
  7. It's that time of year again when vampires, witches, and Disney Princesses spookily roam the streets of Munich with bags of candy dangling from their chilled hands. Why not make your way over to our neighborhood and join in on the sweet Halloween fun?  We appreciate all of the support we can get to keep this event running as amazingly as it has been. If you would like to Trunk-or-Treat (offer candy from the decorated trunk of your car) we more than welcome you to park on Ernst-von-Beling-Straße or one of the side streets off of it. To make it easier to plan how much candy to get, last year we had between 150-250 kids.  It's suggested that the kids go in smallish groups around the neighborhood. It's harder with very large groups of kids...part of the fun is bumping into each other along the way. Think about glow sticks or other things to make sure you are well lit for the traffic. For those of you who have been here before, we will not be making a map this year but will instead hope that many neighbors participate by placing jack-o-lanterns and the like in front of their houses making it clear if they are participating. So just park your car in the area around Ernst-von-Beling-Straße and start trick-or-treating! We look forward to seeing you in our spooky garage, so be sure to stop by and say hi! Feel free to share this with anyone you think might be interested!   WHEN: October 31, from 7pm - 9pm   WHERE: Untermenzing. Park on Manzostraße, Schweidnitzerweg, or Zittenauerstr. We need room for the Trunk-or-Treaters on Ernst-Von-Beling Str.  WHAT:  Kids walk around in small groups (with adult depending on age) and bring a bag with them. All kids should wear a costume (adults are encouraged too). The costume does not have to be scary...anything goes. They go to houses which have made it obvious they are participating (pumpkins, candles, decoration) and say trick-or-treat at the door. They will normally put some candy in each kid's bag or ask the kids to take for them selves. It is best to only take one and ask if you are allowed to take more. make sure to come by the spooky house on Ernst-Von-Beling Str. (my house) as I also give adults special treats as well! (Get your mind out of the gutter please)....See you there! Just PM me with questions. You can find the Facebook event HERE:   
  8. Hey...just trying to see how many other Pittsburghers there are living here in the Fatherland. I'm from Greenfield/SQ Hill area area originally. Rogers and Allderdice Grad. Been in Munich now for 13 years...was love that brought me and kept me here.   How about you?
