Berlin. Im Foyer des Berliner Ensembles sieht es momentan aus, als würde das Theater umziehen: Stuhlreihen werden ausgebaut, um die Zahl der Zuschauer pro Vorstellungen zu reduzieren. Auch sonst musste sich Oliver Reese, seit 2017 Intendant des Hauses, mit seinem Team einiges einfallen lassen, um den Auflagen wegen der Corona-Pandemie gerecht zu werden und Sicherheit für Publikum und Mitarbeiter zu gewährleisten. Wir trafen ihn im Berliner Ensemble zum Gespräch – selbstverständlich in gesichertem Abstand.
