The Berliner Ensemble theater group has removed around 500 of its 700 seats to prepare for reopening in alignment with Germany's social-distancing policies. The Berlin-based theater group, which operates from the 19th century Theater am Schiffbauerdamm building, shared an image of its auditorium on Twitter to give theatre-goers an idea of the experience they will have when it reopens following the Covid-19 pandemic.
