I really enjoyed it and went along with the humour that is at times tricky to follow and falls back upon poor jokes that would be counted as outdated in the UK. However, there was a good range of tradditional dancing and stories that were...More

It has changed. In May 2017 it was 8:30pm every day. No need to book in advance, just show up before showtime and get a ticket.
