Theatre is nothing special and only for the Kung Fu show. Not a fancy theatre by any means and not like going to the theatre in the USA. Seems like only tourist groups go to the show. Show dragged on towards the end and almost fell asleep. If you get free or very cheap tickets then its worth a visit.

Our family loved this. A great mix of dance, kung fu and story-telling. Definitely worth going to watch after a nearby Peking Duck dinner.

This was a last minute, spur of the moment decision for me and my friends. And I'm glad we decided to go. The show features kung-fu stunts presented theatrically which is very pleasing to the eyes. I'm not sure but I think the tickets are cheaper if you reserve online/via phone. They have a toll free number that you can... More

We went to this show after recommendations on tripadvisor and from staff in the hotel. The show will tell a tale about a boys life to become a kung fu warrior. It was a great performance with lots of visual effects and good actors. The story was for the most part presented in English. Would recommend this to tourists who... More

Pretty good fun and worth the money. This is the second time I have seen the show and there have been minor improvements in lighting and special effects but it is essentially the same story of the legend of Kung Fu. Go along and enjoy the spectacle.

We were offered this as an optional extra on our tour, and we're so glad that we went. The story is that of a small boy taken to the Kung Fu monastery by his mother, he goes on to become the grand master himself. The entire production is polished, very impressive.

Not just about Kung Fu, a story to it from a young boy deposited with the monks to be trained and his life. Colourful and enjoyable

This is definitely meant for American tourists. Pros: nice theatre, English speaking staff. Cons: not very authentic, cheesy story line. If you need something to do for an hour in a nice air conditioned theatre this is a fine way to kill some time, but there are many more wonderful and authentic things to do in Beijing so why waste...

We went to see this show last night and had a really good time. The show is a story told through mixture of Kung fu, dance and acrobatics. The cast were great, in particular the little boys - how they do some of the somersaults I have no idea. The music was great and the costumes fab too. It is... More
