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.

The rest of the audience seemed to like this performance much more than I did - at least, they laughed a lot more than I did. The performers took an audience suggestion for the title of a play, and improvised a Shakespearean-like play around the suggestion - ours was "The Man in the Red Stockings". They improvised well, but the content of the "play" was a mash-up of events and storylines that left much to be desired.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Staggeringly brilliant!” --Time Out Chicago
Get thee to the theatre for a night of off-the-cuff comedy inspired by the language and themes of William Shakespeare. Methinks there will be power struggles, star-crossed lovers, sprites or perchance you will delight in sword-play, rhyming couplets, asides, insults or persons in disguise. One thing is certain—though this be madness, there be laughter in’t!
