Not really a Kung Fu show, it's more of a play. There is some kung fu in it, but it is not like watching the Shaolin monk show. It's more of a story but with some showy bits like smashing wood on themselves..

We went to see this show. My rating: 6/10 stars Beware: Don't buy VIP - seats aren't great. You get a banana and a small water and a little pack of cookies. Don't buy the second high priced tickets. Seats aren't better!!! Buy the 3rd best tickets. You won't regret that choice. No pictures during the performance... but actually you... More

This was our evening entertainment for our first day with a tour group in Beijing. The show was entertaining, however, the level of performer talent was lagging behind other similar, child based, acrobatics shows I have seen. That being said, if you haven't been to something like this before you will almost certainly enjoy it.

If you're in Beijing, do not miss this. I'm glad I didn't. Very colorful, entertaining, and breath-taking display of acrobatics.

The visit to the Red Theatre was part of the tour package. We enjoyed the show, acrobatic, colourful. You can buy snacks and mingle prior to the show. Very energetic display of Chinese skill and art. It was a great show and I would recommend it !!!

Having seen the Shoalin monks before in the UK I was expecting much of the same, but I was pleasantly surprised. The show has been revamp making the use of actors to purvey the relationship of the monk with a woman (something which a real monk cannot do). The story is subtitled and has a good line to it. The...

If you are in Beijing even if overnight. Do yourself a favour and go and see the show. Words cannot describe the talent that you will see. My only regret is that you cannot take pictures of the show but are able (for a small fee USD $4) to take a picture with the stars after the show. I would... More

This wasn't what I was expecting... it was much better. Very artistic and captivating. The performer are truly artists and the music was great. Opportunity after the show for photographs with the cast. I would recommend this show to anyone looking for a great show. English subtitles.

I was there on 23rd November 2014. Was late, the show started yet I still can enjoy the rest of the show. Don't sit on 1st floor, can;t really see the performances when they are high up. I was with tour and caught up in a jam.

This just reinforced the unbelievable ability of the artists in martial arts – great story that is true to their heritage. Even if you don’t know it already, one can easily follow the storyline as it is presented in English throughout the performance. Great skill and performance!
