A great place for a night out in Berlin to enjoy live theatre. Book well in advance to avoid disappointment. These shows are very popular. They have a good website where you can get details about the show schedule. I bought tickets through my hotel concierge at the Pullman Berlin Schweizerhof before I arrived in Berlin. I was able to get excellent seats even though the show was sold out by the time we arrived in Berlin.

Much of the show was dancing with a lot of acrobatics. There was also singing with most of the songs performed in english or part english and german. Sort of like Vegas Chorus meets Cirque de Soleil.

My teenaged daughters loved this show. Lots of good humour and sexy but in a classy way.

Reading to the description of the "show me" show, i was very excited to see it.. But all my expectations were disattended, except for the palace that is beautiful and rich of colours. The show tries to replicate a Cirque du Soleil atmosphere, but is all disorganized, with rapper singers near to classic ballroom dancers. The show has no story line, only a sequence of attractions that could be marvellous but aren't, like the water fall, the aquatic ballet, and I didn't understand the "aim" of some of them like the lap dance or the mime that goes all around without doing anything. Some singers and dancers are good, others aren't, the attraction i did appreciate a lot are the acrobats. Then, paying 35 euros to see all of this is worthless, better choose a Cirque Du Soleil show, simply another class of entertainment.

Theatre is amazing building. The show... Good orchestra! Eccellent female singers male singer good but naif... The ballet honestly indecent: terrible choreography terrible dancers. Very poor acrobatic segments except the 2 trapeze artist.

This was a great night out, the show is pure talent with an incredible amount of variety seamlessly joined together. The talent of everyone involved was absolutely top class !! Hard to say what was the favourites for me but the water show and faultless dance routines - incredible !! Berlin is a great town, great night out and I'll be back to see the show a second time.

The best floor show I've ever been to. The world's largest stage provided a magnificent setting for this incredible show. The water section and the trapeze couple were mind blowing. Pure traditional entertainment, mixed with colourful futuristic costumes, laced with a bit of comedy and 4 vocalists. Great transport links for the theatre too. If you are in Berlin, make sure you get tickets for this. You wont be disappointed.
