Dutch Cultural Programming at Boom Chicago’s Rozentheater

In addition to Boom Chicago’s English language comedy shows, Boom Chicago is expanding our cultural offering. Under the name Boom Amsterdam, we launch a series of creative Dutch-language events by Amsterdammers for Amsterdammers.

Due to the Corona crisis, financial cutbacks and worse, a lot of cultural activities no longer have a place in the city or they have to rethink their approach. Boom Chicago wants to offer these productions a new home under the Boom Amsterdam umbrella. We are excited to announce our new creative productions for Boom Amsterdam.
