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

In short, it felt like a Scientology (or, anyone remember Amway?) convention. I should have done my research beforehand, as it wasn't difficult to find the truth about this organization with a quick Google search. We just handed our money over to a prejudiced and oppressive organization, thanks to the Flynn's support of this group. Think about that.

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

I knew something was amiss when I noticed the policing of the audience by troupe members. Wearing earpieces, wrist microphones, and carrying "purses" which were actually recording devices, Shen Yun members communicated back and forth, watching for any potential recording of the performance. There were so many of them, all over the place, I felt like I was in that scene from "The Sound of Music" when the Von Traps escape after their performance. Then the perfpormance. Quickly it became apparent that this was a propaganda tool for the organization, complete with saccharine Mc's, elementary storytelling with heavy-handed political and religious messages. It was all very unsettling and disturbing, and I knew we had been suckered. Frankly, I am stunned that the Flynn Theater participated in this trickery.
