This is a good venue, but has a big drawback. We had premium seats (in Loge 11) for Sunset Boulevard this week - it was a great show but was ruined as the entire climax was hidden from us behind the proscenium arch. Absolutely ridiculous,...More

Went to the RyX concert and was very positively surprised. We like the seating and the fact that both visibility and sound in the place are fantastic. Will definitely come back.

Carré is Arguable the best theater in the Netherlands, if it is not the best than at least it is the one with the most famous history. If you're in Amsterdam and can get tickets to see anything there than you will not be disappointed...More

Absolutely most enjoyable performance, highlights entertaining, great team of musician! Very good solo's: gitar, piano, tambourine, violins, etc. Great sketches and beautiful songs. The theater itself is already worth visiting. Great view from the first Floor balcony.

All of this is the Herman van Veen show. A superb comedian, singer, musician, he always provides you with an additional view on life and the ones that you live it with. You go home with happy and positive thoughts. Worth your while!
