“really?”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

I know this is a traditional Vietnamese art form but it's really cheesey. At least for those of us in our mid-30's. Probably fun for kids. I did enjoy the live music. Might be worth the $3 entry if you have an afternoon to kill or it's raining out, otherwise skip it.

“Fun experience!”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Cute performance with wonderful music! Only about $5, so it is cheap entertainment. Theatre is right in the center of town and very easy to find. Go early in the day to get tickets as the shows seem to sell out fairly quick. Musicians are absolutely fantastic! The puppet part of the show is extremely well done. Highly reccomend this excellent look back at early Vietnamese culture!

“Pretty amatureish”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

not too keen on this one. Was a bit amateurish. You could see the puppeteers behind the curtain .Just not our cup of tea.
