Watched AO show ten years ago and remembered being utterly impressed with it.
Watched it at Hoi An too but the one here at Saigon just felt funnier and more impactful.
Watching it ten years later with our kids now and they loved it too, especially the "inverted tortoise". Loved that the new version added new interactive elements, where the performers interacted with audience and got some audience participation.
What can be improved?
With the renovation going on, the waiting/holding area where they were giving out complimentary drinks before the show has been pushed to the balcony side of the theatre. Being a dead end, it was a little tight with audiences intuitively wandering towards the balcony / dead end after getting their drinks, wondering where they should head to. Some audiences with second floor seats did not know where to head to, too. It was made more confusing as some audiences collected alcohol, while others wondered if those were complimentary. We stood there for a while and observed that the waiting area was a little chaotic.
Maybe a clear indication of the two types of tickets (i.e. alcohol versus non-alcohol) and a map of direction/ traffic flow printed on the back of the ticket would help.
