Falun Gong's Shen Yun Show

The dances and costumes were nice for many of the numbers. However, the constant disruption of the show by closing the curtain and having 2 robotic MCs introduce the next piece made the show slow and broke up the energy. It was nice to learn a little about the piece, but it could have been done in a more fluid manner.

The worst thing was that 1 out 3 numbers were purely religious promotion for Falun Dafa. This included gospel operatic songs and several dances hailing the religious beliefs. What particularly angers me, after paying too much money for prime seats, is that there was nothing in the advertising or brochures plastered all over the city about this. There is not even a mention of the sponsorship of the local Falun Dafa organization, which after some inquiry I discovered after the show. I found this offensive and underhanded...especially given that I brought my 5 year old with me. It completely ruined my experience. If I wanted to be preached to I could go to my local church.
