The first theatre on Romanian soil was reputedly in the ancient city of Histria, as archeological digs attest. The first Romanian-language theatre opened in 1817, and the literary cultural boom of the following decade gave rise to talented playwrights and stage actors. Today, there are theatres in every major city and town, and several respected theatre schools.

A Jewish theatre has been established in Bucharest since 1948, and the first-ever Jewish professional theatre in the world was formed in 1876 in Ia┬ži. The Hungarian minority have established theatres in Cluj-Napoca, Timi^oara and Targu Mures.
