I love my Broadway musicals and this was such a visual feast. Definitely read the story before hand if, like me, your Mandarin is essentially non-existent. It helps you follow the show and lets you appreciate the spectacular visual effects, dance, acrobatics, and effects. The...More

I cannot stress strongly enough how important it is that this show appeaers in your travel intinerary! The story is already beautiful but the way in which it comes to life is truly brilliant! Xi'an captured my heart with this performance.
