For the third year running, workers will erect a gorgeous 800-seat temporary theater out of wood for the Bamboo Theatre—the annual three-week series of performances of Cantonese opera, Chinese dance and contemporary music. This year's iteration will open with the timeless classic works of the world-renowned Plum Blossom Award Art Troupe of Chinese Theatre Association, who present four nights of excerpt performances in various theatrical genres including Jingju, Kunju, Yueju and mixed Xiqu. New to the program is the “Rising Stars in Cantonese Opera Showcase”, classic Chinese opera movie screenings, and an exhibition to preview the under-construction Xiqu Centre which will be opera's new home. Never a better time to catch this traditional art form!

Hong Kong dancers and a group of third-generation Japanese Butoh dancers are putting on a series of performances exploring the notorious Kowloon Walled City. They liken it to a tower of Babel in the post-war period, as immigrants flooded Hong Kong, and created opportunities in the Walled City despite its dangers. But it's not all about the history of the place; it's about the differences between our current "civilized" cities in Tokyo or Hong Kong and the Walled City, and...

Muggles Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner's hilarious Potter-fest is a rapid reenactment of all seven books in 70 minutes, complete with a fire-breathing dragon and a "real" game of quidditch. Either way, it's probably the most intense Harry Potter marathon you'll ever encounter. After a highly successful Hong Kong run in 2012, it's back this September. Seriously, though: at ...

It's about two working class vagrants in depression-era USA, working to scrape a living and to one day buy the land of their dreams. One of them is obsessed with stroking soft things, like...

Following on from their February run of "P.S. Your Cat is Dead," Naiad Productions returns with an even more exciting and promising production: "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The play by Dale Wasserman (and original novel by Ken Kesey) was made famous by the 1975 Jack Nicholson film. Haven't seen it? It's about a band of patients in a mental institution, suppressed by the authoritarian and brutal Nurse Ratched. Randle McMurphy, a new arrival to the...

Shakespeare's Globe theater comes back to the Hong Kong stage with the classic comedy: "A Midsummer Night's Dream." You might have read this in school, but this is a chance to see the play as it was intended to be seen. They'll be staging the production in full Rennaissance garb and set design—just like the bard dreamed up, 400-odd years ago. There will only be six shows, so get your tickets before they're all snatched up, you common cry of curs.
