Theater Professor: Every Moment of Shen Yun Is Spectacularly Put Together

“I’m very much into theater, and I’m getting a lot of ideas for things I want to do.”
 

“I was a dancer when I was much younger, and I think every moment in this is spectacularly put together.”
 

“This is brilliant. It’s probably the best dancing I’ve seen. … The dancers are exquisite … The “Yellow Blossoms” [dance] is so eye-catching.”
 

“I really like the way they are using the projections with the cartoons (digital animation). It’s pretty new technology. Every part of it is fantastic.”
 

“I wonder how many pieces [of music instruments] there are. It’s great.”
 

“The soprano was beautiful.” 
 

“It makes me want to look into the history.”
 

“I’ve studied Taoism, Buddhism. It makes me want to go back and do some more. I didn’t realize they would go into such a dark place for part of it (religious persecution in modern day China), but I thought that was very appropriate and very good.”
 

“I’m very happy I came to [see Shen Yun].”
