Re: “Vermont LG Becomes Part of Shen Yun's Massive Marketing Blitz

Does anybody think it's weird that the critic has not even seen the show?

Re: “Vermont LG Becomes Part of Shen Yun's Massive Marketing Blitz

The author seems to have concerns that Shen Yun is some kind of "Bait and Switch" operation to fill the coffers of "Master Li's financial empire" meaning it's all about the money. This seems like a very ornate and complicated way just to make money. A more logical explanation is that the stated purpose of Shen Yun is actually true: It goes through all that trouble of travel, practice constant harrassment from the CCP to show the grandeur of life and art before the CCP rose and tried to destroy all the culture before it so that no-one would remember any other way except the the CCP way. That's why it was called a "Cultural Revolution" That is what it's purpose was. It hasn't changed.

Re: “The Story Behind Lavish Chinese Dance Extravaganza Shen Yun

If your goal is only to be a millionaire, why bother with a "lavish" and complicated production? It just does't add up. Your not going to go through all that trouble and daily work just to make a few milliion dollars which he was before the show even started because he has been in the US since 1992.

Re: “The Story Behind Lavish Chinese Dance Extravaganza Shen Yun

Dear MaineVIsitor, Austin, Sean Cronin and DeeBEE - The reason some of the people who you see trying to get people to go to the show seem pushy is because they are normal average people with not a lot of experience - just volunteer passion from Chinese folks who have not outgrown their CCP brainwashing yet. Think about it - people are going to be different when they grow up being repressed by the Chinese Communist Party. But their hearts are in the right place.
