PRICEY DISAPPOINTMENT

I thought I was being super disrespectful when I laughed inside thinking maybe it’s just me, however by intermission half of my section was gone and a few more didn’t come back after. They advertised beautifully choreographed artful dances, and what we got was a joke. There was maybe 2 dances close to worthy but the rest was a JOKE. Wished I would have looked up reviews before purchasing.

SO SAD

Nothing but repetition of slow moving performances. The clothes change but that's all that does. I actually nodded off 3 times before intermission which is when I left. I would have been much better entertained at home watching something like America's got talent. 10 to 15 people on a stage spinning around while a couple people do some flips was not anywhere near worth the $150.00 it cost.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK. AND ONE STAR IS TOO MUCH FOR THIS SHOW

Complete scam. I bought into the advertising and greatly regret it. After about 15 min into the show, I realized what a mistake this was. And by the end, I realized that the show is cheap propaganda. Seattle theater shouldn’t allow this company to continue scamming people. It is not at all what the advertisement promised, it was not traditionally Chinese at all. I hope whoever is thinking about spending so much money on this show reads these reviews first. I wish I did.

WHAT A SCAM

Not anything close to traditional Chinese performing arts. It was cheap performance filled with religious and political propaganda. Total false advertising. They claim you can't see performance like this in China because the art is lost there. But it's actually because the organization needs our freedom of speech and religion to spread their anti-communism agenda. With allall respect to their beliefs, I still don't appreciate a 2 hour presentation of it advertised as art.

ABSOLUTE RIP OFF

We were so excited and spent a ton of money on this. What a disgrace. The dancers were no better than grade school children putting on a show for their parents. Boring, absolutely painful to watch. What an embarrassment. How can they allow a show like this to be in Toronto and charge people such an amount for this absolute garbage. Do yourself a favor DO NOT fall for the commercials about this show, what you see when you get there is nothing even close to what they advertise

2.0 star rating from Chicago, Illinois

FALSE MARKETING AND ADVERTISING/MARGINAL PERFORMANCE

Watched the Spokane WA show 4-13-19. If you watch the trailers for the show, and listen to the interviews of people who watched it, it appears to be one of the most fantastic shows produced. I have watched other Chinese performances that have far outdone this phony, over hyped, over religious performance. I traveled 210 miles and a hotel, plus 100.00 a ticket to see it. The Spokane chamber, the INB center, and anyone else in the Spokane area that promoted this should be ashamed of themselves. I will always second guess their judgement for performances I travel to now, and look for other venues. My 23 year old girl fell asleep during the performance, and I never heard the crowd so quiet when leaving one. Who is profiting from this? Two stars might be generous, but I allow it for effort and costume, not creativity or talent. And please, someone take those two monotone MC's off stage, and get rid of the so called bass singer. I would not travel to see this show, nor pay 50.00 per.

OVER PROMISED & UNDER DELIVERED

I wish I had looked at more reviews for this before I purchased the tickets. This was at best a mediocre performance and I can do without the overly dramatic proselytism for Falun Dafa. Not worth 1/8 of what I paid for the tickets.....
