Web Editor:International Daily
Imported to Shanghai from London, an immersive show dubbed "The Grand Expedition" takes guests on a virtual tour to places all over the world through singing and dancing, as well as lots of local fares.The Grand Expedition, first produced by Gingerline, a British company specializing in combining dining with immersive experiences, made its debut in London in 2018.The show is in its second season, which will conclude on October 7."I feel like I'm in the magical world. It feels like I'm in Disneyland. I enjoyed it very much. If other people come here, I think they'll also enjoy it very much. About the food, I think the last one, ice cream, is very delicious," said Chen Jing, a participant."I've been to another immersive show before. It's kind of similar, making people feel as if you were there in the fairytale, but it didn't include dining. I think this one is better. I can not only enjoy the performance but also interact with the actors and enjoy tasty food," said Nora Gu, another participant.The show was first introduced to Shanghai in late July this year, with 81 shows performed in 27 days, receiving about 7,000 people."I saw the show back in 2018 in London, and when I saw it, I was amazed because it was so exciting. At that time, China lacks such productions, and I think it's a very good idea to bring it here. We listen to the audience a lot because the show has dining -- dishes and food in the show. So we understand that some of the design of the menu may not appeal to the Chinese audience's stomach, so we changed some of the dishes," said Xie Yi, chief producer of Drama Plus Entertainment.
