“Varieté” stands for an impressive program combining artistic and acrobatic performances with dance, music, magic and comedy.
The purpose of a variety theater is to offer culture and entertainment for everybody’s taste.
In Germany, Varieté theaters became popular in the late 19th century and peaked during the 1930s in larger cities throughout the country.
The Friedrichsbau Varieté Stuttgart was founded in 1898 in an art nouveau building and was one of the most popular variety theaters throughout Germany, featuring international stars such as Josephine Baker.
In 1944, the building was completely destroyed in a bombing, leaving Stuttgart without a Varieté until 1994, when the Friedrichsbau Varieté opened its doors to the public.
Today, the Stuttgart Varieté has regained its reputation as one of the best international Varieté theaters in Germany.
