If you walk by it on pretty much any evening, you will find dozens of buses from all over Austria. Musicals happen to be very popular with people who usually would not go to the theater. If they come in organized groups with a bus, it is a big advantage to aim for an accessible place such as the Raimund Theater.
The Raimund Theater was named after Ferdinand Raimund, a popular playwright that produced lots of folk plays of the genre 'Wiener Volkstheater'. From the beginning, the Raimund Theater targeted the taste of common people. It was built by a society of Viennese burghers and opened at the end of the 19th century. Whilst the Wiener Volkstheater can be seen as somewhat trivial, it certainly makes the Raimund Theater a preferred venue for musicals alongside with the Ronacher in the First District.
