Seasoned troop of Chinese stars dish out a near flawless perfromance. Great for all ages. Tight show with little or no downtime. Good value at the price.

“Great show for young and not so young too!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Lots of reviews here, agree this is a nice change of pace from other Branson shows.
My kids of 11 and 8 were engaged, and there was enough action and music to keep my 5year old w/special needs from squirming too much.
A couple of suggestions. You do not want the front row for this one. Too close and you cannot see the performers' feet. Row 6 has the most leg room, as that's where the theater starts to slope upward. You want that row or larger. You will be able to see just fine.
Also, eat elsewhere. They have reasonable prices on candy and soft drinks, a little pricey on popcorn, and that's about it. We went to the 3pm show and then out to dinner and it was perfect.
I also really liked the souvenirs here - great suggestion to purchase a parasol and ask the performers to sign it.
Don't expect Vegas-level costumes or stage production, but the talent is HUGE. We'll be back!

Amazing performers. Very entertaining with a good variety of acts. The things these kids can do is mind blowing. Change of pace for us because there is no singing of comedy. Really enjoyed it.

This was such a wonderful show! The performers were fantastic! If you are interested in something other than a musical this is a great choice! I would highly recommend!!!

“Excellent family show”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Our kids ages 11 and 8 LOVED this show. Amazing acts and we love the fact the performers do meet and greets and pictures in the lobby afterwards.
