It's unbelievable but true. World's smallest theater is performed out of a Royal Enfield Open link in a new window sidecar. It's run by The Grand Theatre of Lemmings Open Lemmingstheatre.Co link in a new window, and has been in existence since the 1970's, although in the beginning it was not a Royal Enfield motorcycle but a PantherPanther Sidecar 1951 motorcycle. The owner of the motorcycle sidecar, a certain Marcel Steiner, heard someone joke about the big sidecar that "That sidecar is ridiculous! You could build a theatre in that sidecar". And that is exactly what he did.

Marcel toured the world with his smallest theater in the world, and for 30 years he performed for 100% sold out performances, not a single seat remained without a spectator... with only two seats in the sidecar it wasn't a big accomplishment.. but still, it's got to be a record.

Since the demise of world's smallest theater, it has recently been revived. The Grand Theatre of Lemmings have taken a Royal Enfield sidecar and fitted it with 2 seats and are now touring the UK with the gigantic production of King Kong. King Kong in a sidecar.... I got to see that!

If you look at the 1980 video below of the original theater and Marcel Steiner (now deceased) and after you have finished laughing and wiped off your tears, you then realize that these folks may have a hit on their hands. If they are even 50% as funny and original as Steiner & crew, it's a winner.
