The dancing and music performances were good, but i was left wanting more acrobatic and
thrilling stunts. The costumes were colorful and fit well with the performers. For what you pay i
was expecting more elaborate routines or more stunning visuals, but i have seen other musical
performances that outshine this show. I took my mother, wife and two young children and none
of us left getting what we expected. We saw the performance at the Paramount Theater and
the seating was not great. I sat two rows behind a tall gentleman so I was going side to side in
my seat trying to get a decent view the whole show. My young children could barely see
anything over the heads of people in front of us too. The seating is not stadium seating, so it's
the luck of the draw if you have a good view or not. Based on myself and the people around me,
i was not the only one with this problem. Unless you really want to see this show and are okay
with a slight religious undertone, save your money.

BORING; WAISTED TIME AND MONEY
The show was not like one piece that you watch from the beginning to the end on one breath
(like for example cirque du soleil "O"). Two hosts after each dance number were so boring
bringing all dynamics of this concert so down. The technical part of the show was also poor
and outdated, may be 10 years ago this video projection of poor quality was great. The
orchestra sound must be better - this is 2018 and they should use microphones to make a
perfect sound to connect to the "show". There are some ridiculous dance numbers with cell
phones and all these communist anti-propaganda. There is no leitmotif and logically
developed direction - just chaos. And stage also looked poor because there were no
decorations and they relied on this poor projection on a screen. Bottom line - we are very
disappointed. Lost money and time. If you think that we are the only people who complain on
this show, type in google " south san francisco shen yun review on yelp". Not recommend this

PRETTY COSTUMES, VERY GOOD ORCHESTRA BUT TONS OF FALUNG GON
Oh my... where to start... This show is definitely
overpriced for what it really is... Costumes are
colorful, and the dancers are good (not that
impressive), but there is so MUCH political and
religious propaganda, that's is both, unethical and
outrageous. Went to see this show in Vancouver,
March 24 2018 and I was shocked of how much
propaganda content there was. Also, we found the
flying spirits, angels and demons in and out of the
huge video screen were super tacky and kind of
ridiculous. The banner they showed despicting
"Falong Dafa is good", and the communist bad guys
beating good samaritans were like the (rotten) cherry
on the top of the cake... If I would have known about
this , I would have never paid $119 each ticket. Felt
like we contributed for their political and religious
campaign... We just want to let people know so they
can take a better informed decision than we did!. If
the propaganda doesn't bother you, and you're
willing to spend $120 or more each ticket, go for it

ARTFUL, BUT NOT ENTERTAINING
This show is a compilation of styles of different classical dances from China. The Chinese
government, since the communist revolution, has worked to eradicate what it considers to be
elitist art. These dance and music styles have been eliminated from China, but some Chinese
peole here in America have perserved the art.
The dance styles and costumes are very beautiful and interesting, but unless you speak
Chinese, the singing and overall performance tends to be long and boring.
There's no overall story, since it is styles from across many centuries.
I'm glad I wnt to see it one time, but I probably won't ever go again.

SHEN YUN 2018
Saw the 2018 Shen Yun performance at McCaw Hall, My wife and I were "prepared
to be amazed", but left very disappointed. The performers were great, but the show
lacked an easy flow. After each set, two narrators appeared on stage to introduce
the next set and explain everything. The make narrator tried to inject some lame
humor from time to time, and that just didn't work. Would have been better to just
eliminate the narrators and let the crew change sets with curtains closed. Beside
the continual communism beating, we noticed a definite western bent on the show.
The kicker for us was the scene where one male dancer happened to plant his face
in the rear end of another male dancer. Dancer A proceeds to fart in dancer B's
face, knocking him over backwards. Very funny. Just the kind of thing we were
hoping to see in this production. So sad! We had cheap seats ($90.00 ea), and I was
happy that we didn't get the expensive ones. Overall, not worth the cost for parking,
Robert Ebright from Mesa, Arizona
The costumes were beautiful, but for the $100.00 per ticket it wasn't worth the money. The dances were the same over and over again. In between each set a lady came out speaking Chinese. why? This is the USA. The show advertisement is better than the show. I would not recommend it. We were a group of four and no one liked the show.
The theater was ok, but there was a lot of people that kept talking during the show.
The advertisement make the show appear better than it is. The reviews they show, are individuals who were paid to give a great review.
Alex K from Toronto, Ontario
OK, BUT TOO HEAVY-HANDED.
I enjoyed many of the dances, and the costumes and music could be very pleasant. However, the show was far too heavy-handed politically, and the advertising did not give an accurate picture of the
kind of show we would receive. Some of the dances told a fun story and I especially enjoyed some of the instrumental content, but the opera singers and several dances were quite preachy. The CGI
backdrop was cheesy, and a final dance of Buddha wiping out Falun Gong persecutors in a wave of judgment was, well...not what I came to see. The
price of the tickets did not at all reflect the quality of the show. Beware of Shen Yun!
