I gotta compliment the dancers for putting in so much work for this performance. They did great! But the choreography was overly religious, not their fault. The dances were super repetitive, same routines. I highkey expected something better than that. The experience was okay but not worth 135$ for one ticket. Won’t go again.

1.0 star rating Marco Polo from Newark


I am very disappointed by this show. The dancers were not as impressive as I thought they would be. Prolly because it is overhyped by everyone. In the video, they seemed much more acrobatic. The show is super religious, its propaganda for the Falun Gong movement. NOT RECOMMENDING IT TO OTHERS.

1.0 star rating Ishan G from Cincinnati, Ohio


The advertisements everywhere attracted me to go watch the show but I was immediately disappointed: the back screen was the only set decoration they had there. Also, the dances were the same over and over again, nothing new or surprised me. I invited my whole family of five to go watch it but none of us enjoyed it. That’s sad. Nothing special at all, I don’t even know what all the hype is about.

1.0 star rating Foxy the Human from New York, NY


The show was okay, I liked it. The dancers were excellent but the play/show was boring and dry. I almost fell asleep there except it was too loud. Most importantly, the show was not worth that much money, I paid over $300 for two tickets. I thought it would get better and kept waiting for the spectacular to happen but it never did. ps: singers need to improve their singing skills. :( sorry

I went to see Shen Yun Chinese Show with my family and our tickets are super doper expensive. I don’t think it’s worth that much because it got boring after a little bit. I didn’t know what message they are trying to deliver, I can tell it’s Chinese Propaganda though. Unless you are religious, I do not recommend going to it.

1.0 star rating Andrey Mahnev from Chicago, Illinois


As I understand it, all these participants in the show are raising money for their cult and for the already very rich family of the Master Li Houngzhi. Refund my money !!! Ticket very expensive, not for this very badly chinese result.

1.0 star rating Andrei Makhnev from New York, New York


I wanted to make a present for my family and children. But it was a shame. Refund my 1000 dollars back for tickets !!! Disgusting and terrible music, written as it turned out by mediocre Chinese amateur composers. This show is just awful. It should be banned in America. Too violent for young children. After the episode when one victim had their eyes cut out alive, we left this terrible place.
