This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great music. Drawing on more than 2000 years of tradition, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, plate-twirling, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

I felt it was amateurish. The dancing was stilted and there was no chemistry between the lovers. The 3 soviets were funny and probably the best part of the show. I was very disappointed in the performance.
I have seen much better performances at Musical Theater West.
<p>New Book by Stuart Ross
Lyrics by Cole Porter</p> <p>Director - Stuart Ross
Musical Director - Darryl Archibald
Choreographer - Lee Martino</p> <p>Soviet-American relations were never funnier or had more singing and dancing than in this delightful tale involving a U.S. director, a Soviet composer scoring his film, and a pretty Russian spy trying to keep the composer from defecting.
In this musical remake of the 1939 classic film Ninotchka, an alluring but aloof female Communist visits Paris on an assignment to evaluate three Russian officials. But when she meets a charming U.S. filmmaker there, her perspective on the world changes -- and the chilly bureaucrat soon finds herself melting in his arms. </p> <p>Iit's not long before she's enjoying such decadent western pleasures as jazz, makeup and silk stockings. The classic Cole Porter songs include "All of You", "Stereophonic Sound", "Too Bad" "Paris Loves Lovers", "Silk Stockings", and "Fated to be Mated".</p>
