Cheap ("proletarisches") theater
I don't get out as much as I should, but I know there are some options for those with little resources to see shows, especially in less known venues. The Freies Museum does shows Thursday nights, I think which are free, and even some of the more established presences offer discounts for those working on low budgets (the Berliner Ensemble, I know offers "Stehplätze" for every show at the cost I think of 2€). Most operas and ballets in the city, as well as most -- if not all of the museums offer discounts to students and those receiving social assistance (for instance, a typical show at the Volksbühne, near which I live runs somewhere around 5 or 6 € for students, and those in the above categories). Stressfaktor, additionally (on squat.net) offers current listings of events ("Termine"), and there are usually always lectures going on in and around the universities (for instance, Peter Marcuse -- Herbert Marcuse's son will be speaking in a couple days -- as of this posting -- at the former JFK school here in town on the recent crackdowns on occupations in new York, London & around the world. It's not theater, but then Shakespeare suggested "all the world's a stage".
