HOUSTON—Architect and professor Susan Scott-Fundling saw the Shen Yun Performing Arts matinee with her two children and her mother at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts on Dec. 30.

“The costume was so beautiful,” she said.

Ms. Scott-Fundling teaches interior design at a university in Arlington, Virginia, and lives in Washington, D.C.

This weekend, because she was going to be in Houston, her mother booked tickets to Shen Yun.

“It was very beautiful, very delicate and rich. I love the dancers and the differences—there was comedy as well as seriousness. It was nice,” Ms. Scott-Fundling said. According to the Shen Yun website, there is tremendous variety in China’s stories. “Through the process of being passed down through generations and novelists eventually putting them into writing, these stories became even more lively and delightful. Here you will find a cast that reflects all levels of Chinese society, valiant heroes, brilliant strategists, fearless generals, and unwavering monks.”

Ms. Scott-Fundling said she enjoyed the male and the female emcee, who introduced each performance.

“They would speak in Chinese as well as English. I think that was unusual and it was nice,” Ms. Scott-Fundling said.

Her mother, Mrs. Dora Scott-Nichols, often sees fine performing arts in Houston, Ms. Scott-Fundling said.

Her mother said she was happy to have seen Shen Yun.

“The costume and the dance was very impressive,” said Mrs. Scott.
