Mr. Tang of Washington, DC, made a special trip to see the show. He commented, "The show is really good. From the costumes to the choreography, the orchestra--everything was very good. I have seen many Chinese shows in the US, including many presented by groups from Mainland China, but none of them is as good as this one; there's no comparison. In particular, I like the fact that show presents history and traditional culture."

Amy Love: "The show conveys a very good message and gives people hope."

Amy Love is a psychiatrist in Philadelphia. She said that she loved the brilliant color and thought the show was gorgeous and elegant. She said the persecution of Falun Gong reminded people of another China and that the show conveyed a very good message: "A good life is not lived in vain, and you don't die in vain, either. The show gives people hope."
