“Big, Big Show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

In reviewing this show I wanted to be honest and say that it wasn't my type of show, or entertainment, but that said....it is a very big, and 'splashy' (in more ways that one) and entertaining show. The right guest with the taste for a huge production show would love this spectacle. It is a review, and a mix of visuals, story, costumes, effects, and music. The theater is amazing, and it is mostly a show that would suit families. And even if it weren't mostly in English you would still be able to follow the show, and just be visually entertained by it.

“Show Me Glamour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Fantastic show very suitable for everyone with its variety of acts. Some dancing, acrobatics, fun, comedy and the evening not to forget. The layout of the seats is great and you will be able to see well even from side rows. The building is outstanding and well worth a visit.

“Amazing show - suitable for non German speaking tourists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We found this show on the WEB and easily reserved tickets Online. Upon arrival, we asked if there were any better places available on our "price class" and indeed the smiling cashier suggested we take different seats that were still free - excellent advice and friendly attitude !!!
The show was diverse, colorful, fun and at times breathtaking - both visually and artistically.
As non-German speakers we were a little hesitant – but, for apparently no reason. A short introduction in German and English was followed by two hours of entertainment without a single German sentence spoken – it is fully suitable for any audience.
All in all, we would warmly recommend to any tourist visiting Berlin and looking for a grand spectacle combining today's technology with the glamorous shows of the 20's.

“Eat, shop, educate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

A long street with lots of shops, restaurants and attractions so that it can take several hours to walk up or down. Many of the main attractions are just off this street so it is a good base to stay. There are many nice coffee shops and several restaurants but no supermarket type shop if you should be looking for this. Very clean street.
