A touching, thoughtful piece with surprises round every corner! Silent disco meets literal trip down memory lane. Dress light and comfy. For those who aren't used to Singapore weather, be mentally prepared for the possible humidity even in the evenings. With a fan and the...More

I had an amazing experience at Chinatown Crossings. As a Singaporean Chinese and working in Chinatown, I am not unfamiliar to Kreta Ayer. So I was very impressed by how the stories and places in Kreta Ayer were really brought to life through the artistic...More

A very well-thought-out theatre tour, I was so transfixed from beginning till the end and was even moved to tears at one point. All the actors were simply amazing especially the children who played the younger versions of the main characters - the acting was...More

What a great experience - walking the streets of Chinatown with the characters. The actors’s love of their city and their craft was on show. Well worth the ticket price.

It was an enjoyable blend of drama and history sharing. The past of Kreta Ayer (Chinatown) came back to life with the true-to-life acting. To see the action on location made the drama more real. And to get to taste the food of the era...More

Drama Box took stories from the old locals who used to live in Chinatown before it was "Chinatown" and from them developed a fascinating story line which took us all over the area, illuminating a side of the area I had never seen before, even...More

This theatre performance is more just, a performance. I'm brought into the life of the three characters.. from their lives in the living quarters, to places of attractions within their home town, Chinatown, to meeting their old neighbors. There were a few moments where I...More

continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
