The 'Show Me' revue show was superb and the view and comfort from the 'Wall Sky Lounge' excellent. We were well looked after and the experience claimed by theatre management that one would get, was just that, quite an experience. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the show and could not fault anything about it. It was a lovely way... More

The show "show me" was truly a great surprise and a great thing to see if you want something different from ballet, opera, concert, play... it's a very colorful show that will take your breathe away!

In being as sincere and genuine as possible, I am writing about the major disappointment in this show. Technology and $ spent in production is obvious and good quality. While understanding the show was to reflect Berlin and its qualities, the discontinuity in the show was uncomfortable and awful. Listen, there were a couple of dancers and performers that were...

I honestly felt that this was the worst show I have ever seen in MY LIFe!!!! The worst dances, pole dancer with severely bruised legs and prostitue ways. There were no dances to any of the music. The male singer was horrendous and couldn't sing for anything. The men were soooo cheesy. No technique or order. The only decent portion... More

I understand very well that one cannot or does not always want to be objective when disappointed. We accept that you did not enjoy our grand show at all, however several points you make in your comment are both unnecessary and also simply incorrect. Comparing our pole dancer to a prostitute is nothing short of disrespectful. Here in Europe, in... More

We had a great evening out visiting "Show me". It was exactly what we expected or beyond. No story, but a lot of individual performances. Exellent service for wheel chair users.

Although the performance had some impressive parts, (ie. the acrobatics, the classical ballet, and a select few of the special effects) the show in its entirety was incredibly cheesy and overrated. The story line had no flow, and quite frankly made no sense. Why classical ballet, a pole dancer, a mime, a man blowing bubbles, and a dancing astronaut number... More

We accept that you did not enjoy our grand show at all and I understand that one cannot or does not always want to be objective when disappointed. Here in Europe, especially in Berlin, we are rather more tolerant to the revealing of skin. After all, other customs prevail in other countries. All our dancers have received classical ballet training... More

The musical full of acrobatics and dance and song is quite a grand affair- you dont realise 2 hrs of showtime pass- with over 100 performers and many stupendous acts definitely a worth-see.

The versatility of the enormous stage is a performance on its own ! The show is well ORGANIZED with several impressive acrobatic fetes, decent stage effects and teamwork, with great disciplined singers, dancers, musucians with an outstanding percussion...BUT.....it is lacking that spice and spontenaiety of a similar lavish production performed in Las Vegas, Paris or Rio. Perhaps it was the... More

We were looking for a night out in Berlin after a whirlwind of sightseeing. We took a taxi from our hotel on the West side, and it took about 25 minutes. The theater and seats where very comfortable. The show is a variety of acts including singers, dancers, and some acrobatics. The show isn't what I would call Broadway or... More
