Directions to Theater in der Josefstadt
The Theater in der Josefstadt became one of Vienna′s most popular theaters. In contrast to the aristocratic Burgtheater (the oldest theater in Vienna), it drew the common people, the middle class of civil servants, teachers and clergy.
By 1820, the theater′s audience had grown beyond its capacity and the building was demolished completely (so much for being the oldest theater of Vienna).
The new construction was designed in a typical Biedermeier style which is why people consider it typical Viennese - plays are shown that are loved by the Viennese audience, even the architecture fits their tastes. Today, the reputation of the Josefstadt is at least of national significance and it is among the most popular stages in Vienna.
