I just returned from the 1 hour show about the "Eight Immortals". If you have seen Cirque du Soleil or Blue Man, you will be disappointed. I'm not a cultural snob, I really enjoyed the Chinese acrobatic "ERA Intersection of Time" in Shanghai recently. But I think that a westerner would not enjoy this. Maybe the lion dance show is...

This is not worth it. I went there because of all the good reviews. I was absolutely disappointed and left halfway (something I don't usually do). Don't fee fooled by the pictures. This is a small stage, like a high school stage. The play had no set, no props, nothing. It was just 4 actors in Chinese costumes singing opera,... More

The show was in two parts, the first being an amazing and very entertaining Chinese Circus. The second part was an again entertaining "Lion Dance Drama" telling a good easily followed story....

WOW! Everything the add said and more. For under 20 dollars I got to see a theatrical whirlwind. There was music, acrobatics, and juggling... not typical lame juggling, spear juggling between three people who were using their arms and feet. It was astounding. The Venue was very easy to get to, (MRT to the Shuanglian station, three dollar taxi ride... More

I visited this theater around 7.30 PM for 8.00 PM show on Friday. It would cost you around USD 18 (and more expensive on Saturday - 1.30 Hours) for 60 mins show. I was welcomed by friendly staffs from the front door to ticket area to show area... great services. Peking opera on Friday is about two snakes (become ladies)... More

Just under a hundred minutes of spectacle, color, local flavor, awesome costuming and outstanding direction. A short trip to Taipei should be highlighted by an evening's spectacle such as this. If one does not dare miss Broadway in NY or West End in London, Taipei Eye is not to be missed when in this city. Ask for detailed directions. The... More

An awesome place to take the kids. This was our first attraction just after we landed and checked into our hotel. The show starts at 8pm or something and had a break in between. Adults would love this as well.

The show is only one hour and they advise everyone to go a half hour early. We were glad we listened and showed up a half hour before the start of the show as the seats are not assigned and you must take an elevator to the third floor first where the stage is located and quickly claim your seats...

I visited the place on 27 April,the show was Monkey god vs Spider Goblin. The place is in a commercial building in itself but it isn't too hard to find. Just lookout for the Cement hall building which is adjacent to the postal building. The show starts at 8pm and ends at 9 pm. There are displays of costumes and... More
