Awesome show. Great for kids. Exposing my girls to a foreign all girl percussion team whose performance had them drumming on their laps was priceless. After, the girls came out and took pictures with everyone and my girls were in awe because they got to meet the princess Mulan and take pictures with her. The Red Poppy Ladies were so sweet they stayed extra just to play with all the kids after the show. Lots of fun, made you laugh, cry, and cheer. Did I mention the theater was wonderful, intimate. every seat is great and they made everyone move up and they made you feel as if you were have a private viewing of the show.

Walk into this revolution-red theater—with its narrow First Floor Theater, its spectacularly barnlike next-door Ellen Stewart Theatre and the groovy attic Club Theater—and you are transported back in time to the New York scene's ’60s heyday. The mama herself, Ellen Stewart, first opened La MaMa's doors in 1961, and she has since produced major figures like Tadeusz Kantor, Andrei Serban and Ping Chong, along with younger multicultural, dance-theater and avant-garde artists, as well as her own exuberant riffs on classical myth.
