Red Theatre information
The daily show here is The Legend of Kung Fu, which follows one boy’s journey to becoming a warrior monk. Slick, high-energy fight scenes are interspersed with more soulful dance sequences, as well as plenty of ‘how do they do that’ balancing on spears and other body-defying acts. To find the theatre, look for the all-red exterior set back from the road.
