Street comedy theatre operated by the Italian impresario, Lorenzo Lorenzoni. Famous for the comic servant role of "Lipperl", created by Franz Maria Schweiger in 1776, hence also known as "Lipperl-Theater". Also known as "Kreuzer-Theater" [Penny Theatre] relating to the cheap entrance fees. Later, the company was operated by Josef Schwaiger and moved to a newly built theatre on Sonnenstraße (see Schweiger-Theater).
