Went to the show. It was a small theatre, show was all in English. I found the show quite boring, the actors were okay but i feel like the show could of been better. Kids would enjoy the show more i guess.

I've been to see this twice now. It is an English speaking show outlining the history and some of the key characters of venetian history. Very wittingly presented. A great bit of fun for 90 mins or so
