Pénghāo Theatre information
Students from the nearby drama academy sometimes perform here, in this small informal nonprofit theatre, tucked away down a narrow, unnamed alleyway between Dongmianhua Hutong and Beibinmasi Hutong. The venue, which doubles as a cafe, is enchanting, and has some lovely rooftop seating areas, shaded by a 200-year-old tree which slices through part of the building. Performances are mostly modern drama, and are often held in English as well as Chinese. Its website was down when we last checked, so try calling to see what’s on. Some English spoken.
