Württemberg State Theatre (WLB)
As one of three state theatres in Baden-Württemberg, the local state theatre has the task of also performing regularly in towns without a permanent company. In addition to these guest performances, the WLB is also an essential mainstay of cultural life in Esslingen. Each year numerous plays are performed in two venues - in the theatre built in the 20th century and on a stage in Esslingen-Zollberg. The plays vary from chamber productions to great drama. The summer open-air performances in the Old Town, which forms the backdrop for live theatre, are a real magnet for attracting large audiences.
