Great performance
Jul 2016 • Solo
The production was surprisingly amazing, from the acting and singing to costume and staging. If you have not seen the TV show or understand the language, the subtitles were sufficient enough to let you follow the story.

However, this being China and theater etiquette is still severely lacking. On the night that I went, audience members were allowed to come in late, stand around, get in and out of seats as they wish, and also have phone conversations during the performance.

After reading the brochure, I found very professional and memorable team efforts was put on such a great show, from the vintage and luxury costumes to the nostalgic melodies, and to the vivid stage performing out from each actors. The musical touched me a lot and I believe Chinese can also produce a wonderful musical theatre.

I love theaters and everything that connected with it. And when my friend recommended it to me i didn't expect that GOOD. I think Shanghai Bund Musical represents Shanghai in the best way. The elegant luxury costumes showed us old shanghai fashion, and the classic hits of 1920-30s drive us to the old Shanghai times and let us to feel the atmosphere of big love and not always happy ending. Love between young girl and a gangster are sooo touching, you're starting to believe in the power of love ! Amazing show with amazing actors and singers!!!

A Chinese Musical totally out of Expectation

This is recommended by local friends in Shanghai. It's an original musical which tells a classical love story happens in 1930s. The Golden Time of Shanghai is so amazing. I like the old songs and dance part in Parliament.

Fantastic Experience
May 2016 • Couples
if you are curious about Shanghai style glamour and the bygone "Paris of the East" era back in 1930s, this musical show is highly recommended. The Shanghai Bund is always misterious and a symbol of lengend to me.The show combines fantastic atmosphere and very top standard singing and dancing performance, you will see ballet, jazz dance, cabaret dance, hip-hop dance mashed up with Michael Jackson and Kung Fu elements staged within two hours, again, fantastic!

Getting to know Shanghai most through this musical
Apr 2016 • Couples
Wherever I travel, I would love to walk in the theater and soak myself in some original musical or opera, as I called- authentic local taste. I think Shanghai Bund Musical represents Shanghai in the best way I've ever seen. The elegant sometimes luxury costumes reflects the sceneries I've often found in old shanghai movies, and the classic hits of 1930s are another highlight. 'Rose rose I love you' and 'Evening Primrose' brought me back in the old glamour ear-1930s. Romance between two young men are also very touching, make sure you have tissue handy before you go! All in all, the entire experience of watching the show is beyond my expectations! Five stars!Five stars!Five stars!
