WASHINGTON—The Kennedy Center Opera House again hosted the Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company on Jan. 28 part of its 2011 World Tour.

Don Evans, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Holiday Inn Central White House, a sponsor, was at the performance. He was impressed with Shen Yun and said he was “happy to be a sponsor” and that he looked “forward to [Shen Yun’s] return.” He said he was very eager to spread the word that Shen Yun was coming back to Washington.

He said he would describe the New York based Shen Yun to everyone as “Enchanting, educational, and absolutely enjoyable.” He said he was eager have his company post, blog and tweet about the artists, so that their guests can benefit from knowing about it.

“I certainly will recommend it when you return to the Kennedy Center next year.”
Mr. Evans said, “it was a fantastic show.”

“I was extremely impressed by not just the costuming, but the story line as well, and I just can’t say enough about it.”

There were many performances that touched Mr. Evans. He said, “human rights are a big issue.” One story depicts a school teacher whose “human rights were violated,” he said. He hopes for China that “it will open a door and things will get better, and the world will also open and be more prosperous about the situation.”
