Breaking the news AsiaRooms.com reveals that excitement is growing among theatre-goers in Shanghai over the return of Soul of Shaolin.

Fresh from a highly-acclaimed spell on Broadway, the show will be back in China for a three-night run at the Shanghai City Theatre next month.

Soul of Shaolin features 30 performers skilled in the art of Shaolin kung fu and tells the story of Hui Guang, an abandoned child who is raised by the legendary monks and grows up to be martial arts master.

The show debuted at New York's Marquis Theatre in January 2009 as part of the China on Broadway series of productions.

It received rave reviews from many American critics, with the New York Post describing the show as "a dazzling display of skill", while the Associated Press called it "astonishing and amazing".

According to the show's executive director Xue Weijun: "The story of Shaolin is timeless and appeals to all audiences, young and old."

People booking accommodation in Shanghai may not want to miss the latest run of Soul of Shaolin, which will take place from March 12th to 14th.

Ticket prices range from 100 yuan (£9.30) to 300 yuan and the performance gets underway at 19:30 local time each night.
