Following church, I decided to take the remainder of the day off from the rigors of academia to enjoy time with my wife. After frequently so many musical shows in the Branson area, we were in the mood for a change of pace. To be blunt, there wasn't a single portion of this program that I did not find captivating....

Thanks for the great review. We invite you to come back after the 24th when the props designed especially for Yakov's stage will be put in the show. Due to the dockworkers strike on the west coast the props had been delayed. It is our understanding they will arrive sometime this weekend and be in the show (smoothly) by the... More

The 2nd 1/2 of the show was more entertaining than the 1st. I'd suggest the 3 pm show. What these kids can do with their bodies is amazing. And tickets were a good deal when purchased with a Groupon.

The performance was excellent with such a wonderful variety of acts. I especially enjoyed the aerial ballet-type performance with such balance and perfection. The hat performance had humor. The show would hold the interest of all ages.

This is one of those shows that ranks with the Cirque shows. I've seen it once and a friend of mine and I wanted to see it again, but lo and behold, there was Visa problems in March, 2015. I want to view it again. Great flexibility. Good show value. So much fun

Thanks for the kind words and the good news is - we have our visas! We will be open this weekend. As we are in a new location - Yakov's Theatre - the troupe has designed a special show with several new acts. We look forward to seeing you in 2015! More

There were only about 50 people in the theatre, but the show went on. The acrobats performed some amazing and daring moves. Very enjoyable.

Without a doubt, this show was highly enjoyable for me and my 11-year-old daughter. The acrobats are highly talented and there were quite a few things that I've never seen before that made this a very unique show! The acrobats were talented and entertaining. I did not notice any boredom from the majority of them as a few others have... More

These acrobats are amazing. I couldn't believe some of the things they were able to do. Some of them are very young, very talented. It was a great show.

We enjoyed the show. The performers are very talented and completed some amazing feats. We attended on a Christmas Eve and were in the 2nd row. The theater is small so we were pretty close. While very skilled, most of the performers appeared very bored. The costumes didn't fit well and were inconsistent from performer to performer. Besides that little... More

The acrobats were super talented and kept our kiddos entertained. We were pleased with the show even if they kept having trouble with their musical soundtrack.
