The ads are out.
Shen Yun is coming to Fresno, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento and Berkeley.
But do the ads tell you that Shen Yun is pure propaganda for the Falun Gong Cult?
No, they don't. So buyer beware.
Be prepared to be indoctrinated on Falun Gong's tale of woe and persecution. Only it is not that simple. They won't tell you the whole truth. They only want to tell you what they want to you to know. Did you know that Falun Gong member's are told that the only religious writings that are to be read come from their "master" himself. There's lots are very bizarre beliefs about "aliens" and other such things. For a good read on the founding of Falun Gong read: QiGong Fever but do yourself a favor and read it before you spend money on Shen Yun.
If Falun Gong were up front about what they were doing I wouldn't be writing like this but I got tricked into buying their tickets and found out the truth the hard way. By the way, the performance is okay, not top-notch as you will be led to believe, but certainly not worth the money you'll pay to see it.
