The Jabbawockeez are probably the most well known silent modern dance group out of the States (except for maybe The Silhouettes post inauguration, but that's a different story). Anyway the Jabbawockeez are definitely cooler, mixing LA style hip hop dance and jazz matched with state-of-the-art sound, stage, and light design. They've performed with Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Nicki Minaj, and most recently were featured on Aziz Ansari's Master of None. Don't miss their Shanghai debut, tickets here.
Sister Act! The Musical! Is there anything more glorious? No, the answer's no there's not.

Now it'll be at Shanghai Culture Square from September 7-17. Tickets here.
