About Harvard Krokodiloes
Since 1946, the Harvard Krokodiloes have delighted audiences worldwide with their blend of a cappella harmony and humor. The Krokodiloes’ music, sharp choreography, and witticism have provided perfect entertainment for everything from corporate events and concert halls to private parties and country clubs. Epitomizing Ivy League tradition with winsome style and enthusiasm, the tuxedo-clad Krokodiloes bring smiles to every face they meet by embracing the motto that has inspired their musical tradition and excellence for decades: Nunc Est Cantandum - Now Is The Time To Sing. Each of the twelve talented members balances rigorous academic studies with a demanding schedule of over 150 concerts across America during the school year. Since the summer of 1982, the Krokodiloes have dazzled audiences around the world during their annual six-continent world tour.

About the Theater
The ET Theater, was constructed in 1927 as a part of the “Shanghai Grand World,” or 大世界 (Da Shi Jie), the largest amusement center in the Far East at the time. Da Shi Jie was owned by Wang Jingrong (王金荣), godfather of Shanghai’s notorious Green Gang, and the structure served as a heart of performance culture in Shanghai: The stage was designed for sumptuous performances of Beijing Opera. In 1936, Charlie Chaplin visited the theater in the company of the Beijing opera legend Mei Lanfang during his one-day visit to Shanghai . One chronicle of the theater states: “It was a tapestry of Shanghai. Prior to 1949, the fickleness and diversity of Shanghai life, be it politics, money, conspiracy, strife, love, breakup, despair, and death, were fully displayed on stage. Life off the stage was often more colorful and spectacular.” From the 1950’s until only recently, the theater was known as 上海共舞台 (Shanghai Gong Stage or “Shanghai Gong Show”). It was tastefully renovated in 2012.
