February 16, 2016

A glorious celebration of five thousand years of Chinese culture, Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music, integrating technique and influence from both East and West. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from an ancient feudal period of time.

Put down the knitting, the book and the broom, and come to the Cabaret! After wowing on Broadway, The Roundabout Theatre Company's Tony-winning dazzler is heading out on a huge North American tour, bringing the scandalous surround of the gaudy Kit Kat Klub of pre-war Berlin to your door! The role of the flamboyant Emcee will be played by Queer as Folk's Randy Harrison, and Sally Bowles by Andrea Gross!
