WOW, I had no idea. I've always enjoyed the British Invasion and they get a big crowd that sings along. I'm from that era, so I love the music, but the crowd they get is all ages. The last time I watched them, it was really fun to see all of the little kids dancing near the stage.
I'm sorry to hear about the Chinese acrobat kids too. They are always so amazing to watch. I've heard about the Showcase Players being replaced by the Ziti sisters at Italy. I was as big a fan of the show at Italy and enjoyed the one at Britian better. But I was disappointed by the Ziti Sisters. The cast is made up of very talented women (especially the actress who used to play COH Minerva). But I found the show flat. Hopefully it as improved. As I said the cast is very talented, so I hope they have been able to give imput to the show, to improve it.
Yulady, I totally agree. If they continue to remove the entertainment, then it's just like any other theme park. Having the streetmosphere really set them apart from other parks. As you know the COH is the reason we continue to return year after year.
Mad, Mad, Mad about Disney!

You're right. It seems like they want to get more independent and see how they can do on their own.

Beginning Tuesday, May 3, we will welcome a new four-piece, high-energy band to the United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot to replace The British Invasion. Spanning decades of popular British music, every set is an epic concert and every show is a chronological journey with random fun facts about the songs and artists you have come to know and love through the years. From the Dave Clark Five and the Beatles, to the music of Led Zeppelin and The Who, our guests will have a whole new reason to sing and dance!
The British Invasion's contract ends April 30. Guests can enjoy the band's final performances until that time.
