Fodor's Review

This venue is best known for its "Open Bak," an open-stage event each Tuesday where virtually anything goes. It's the longest-running theater program in the Netherlands, where everybody gets their 15 minutes of potential fame; arrive at least half an hour before the show starts to get a ticket. Otherwise, the best amateur groups in the country perform between Thursday and Saturday.
