An enjoyable evening with talented performers. Not over the top like Cirque du Soleil, but down home comfortable and accessible. Better for families, and certainly more affordable. The show has a lot of heart and sincerity.

I have attended this event for several years and haves always loved it. The performers are exceptional and it's a great time for children. However, because of the poor seating I was in this year, I could not see most of the show and cannot rate...continued

Great family fun! Small, convenient arena. The performances were very entertaining and the humor played to all ages. I would definitely do it again! And thanks to gold star, the price was right.

Great fun for young children. Adults would be delighted by the simplicity of the show. Animal acts were cute and clowns and ringmaster enjoyable. Had one unfortunate incident where one acrobat fell off of her rope in the middle of the...continued

I was a little disappointed in my seats. The seats were Floor seats, but they were to the left of the stage which meant the actors backs were to us. Because of this, my grandson got kind of bored and wanted to leave.

I've been to many Big Apple Circus performances, but this year's didn't seem as good as some of the past ones. The clowning wasn't that funny, and some of the gags could be upsetting for younger children (limbs falling off a dummy made to look...continued

This was a great experience. The excitement was nonstop. I took my 5 year old granddaughter . The acrobats amazed her. The clowns made her laugh. The trapeze artists left her transfixed. She gave it her most fervent endorsement; "It was the...continued

A wonderful night for the whole family. Loved the seating under the big top, a great view from any seat! Every part of the show was enjoyable! My four year old granddaughter was totally enchanted, and the first thing when she woke up this...continued

Everyone in our party, kids and grown-up, liked this show. There are a lot of funny moments, with interactions with persons from the audience. Totally in the circus spirit.

For a small circus we were very impressed. I was a bit concerned that it would be too children oriented to interest adults. I'm happy to say I was wrong to worry. It really was a delightful show for everyone. We totally enjoyed the experience.

I have to give it 5 stars because of the sheer joy on my husband's face. It was a good show. Some of the timing was off between the band and the singer but it could have just been an off night. The animals were my favorite part I mean, they had a...continued

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the BIG APPLE CIRCUS. This is my 3rd year taking my kids to see it. They love it too. We all wanted to see Grandma Clown on her Farewell Tour. We will miss her. I highly recommend this wonderful family event.

Overall nice experience. Many of the performances lacked polish, however. This is many notches down from what I have seen at Circ du Soleil. If I had paid full price for the tickets, I would have been disappointed.

Performance was lackluster. Maybe because they are near the end of their run, but the acrobats kept falling and the horse trainer couldn't get the horses to perform and left the ring without doing any tricks. Although the tickets we're "ringside"...continued

The Big Apple always includes eye-popping acts. This year it was the acrobats who formed a 4-story pyramid and jumped rope. It was Grandma's last year in the show, which is very sad as he is a fabulous clown. He didn't disappoint this year, having...continued

The box seats were not well designed. There were two rows in each box, but because the second rows were on the same level as the first row, we only had partial view. Next time we will save money by buying cheaper tickets in the back, where the set...continued
