CLEVELAND, Ohio—At the State Theater tonight, theatergoers were transported to ancient China to experience its traditional culture in a wonderful way!

Ken Konkel, IBM software and technical specialist, and his wife Karen came out to see tonight’s show. Mr. Konkel said, “You feel like you’re in ancient China, experiencing this. It’s fantastic.

“I have been following them for the last few years because the Chinese government didn’t want them to open a center in L.A., in Orange County,” Mr. Konkel said.

“There was a review on the website that I think it was [written by] a dance manager who had traveled to China and he said that you can’t see anything like this there.

Mr. Konkel said, “The costumes are spectacular.

“I liked the intros that are done by the host and the hostess because it let’s you know what’s coming up …

“Another thing I was surprised [about is that] it had humor in it too … the music was fantastic.

“It was wonderful! We will come back again,” Mr. Konkel said.

New York-based Shen Yun has three companies that tour the world each year on a mission to revive 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture. For more information, visit ShenYunPerformingArts.org
