“A fun night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We had great seats and took some good photos ( no flash) of amazing stunts and performances and even some light comedy and magic. The motorbike stunt was brilliant, and I really enjoyed the aerial ballet on the silk ropes. A very talented troupe.

“Troup at shanghai theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Very nice acrobatics
Tricks and stunts as good as in era shows but less show elements, but quite some humor
Centeraly located, so not a long journey from central hotels
Do not go for expensive seets, view is excellent even in the back of the theatre

“Shanghai Acrobatic Show: Great for a Fun Evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

While there is one show in town with the motorcycle stunts, this one at Shanghai Center Theatre is great value for money and a fun way to spend an evening. Rope walks, jugglery, monocycle stunts, mime, magic and comic relief... all in all, a rollicking time. It was house full on a weekday and the audience was cracking up and holding breath alternately!

Great option for visitors and locals alike. Additionally, the adjoining Ritz Carlton complex and the theatre bulding offer some interesting dining options to make it a complete night out in town!

“A few week spots but otherwise incredible.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

No doubt the motorcycle part of this show is fantastic, and the absolute highlight but there are several other acts that entertain and amaze.

The show opened with gymnast/dancers juggling red hats, proceeded through some floor acrobatics and included a beautiful man/woman aerial gymnastic ballet.

There were two acts that did not quite work for me. The magician doing the card and ball manipulation act was probably interesting to the people in the first 15 rows but it really didn't work further back and the plate spinning gymnasts were unlikely. I am not sure that 15 people juggling 4 plates each on the end of long sticks can repeatedly have the dishes perpendicular to the floor and not have them fall. But maybe i am just skeptical.

in any case, a pleasant evening and the finale is great.
