The weather was windy and cold. I wore warm clothes very comfortable in tent.

If you go to this show, you must be facing center stage. All the performances are setup for this to be the best view. Other seating you will definitely miss out on most of the show. Look at my photos to see what i mean.

The overall show was good but the seats we were assigned was close to a beam that was obstructing part of our view. Since the tickets were will call pick up I wasn't able to verify my specific seat location prior to the show.

About the Ticket Supplier: Big Apple Circus

As a leading presenter of family entertainment and a not-for-profit performing arts institution, our nationwide performances and community programs have made our 34-year history far-reaching and full.

It all began in Kent, England, in 1974, when American entertainers and Big Apple Circus co-founders Paul Binder and Michael Christensen became juggling partners and took to the street corners of Europe. Their comedic juggling act was a hit, and they soon found themselves on the stage of the presitigous Nouveau Cirque de Paris. They returned home to America in 1976 with a vision: to entertain and improve the lives of millions. One year later, they found a site for the first tent-raising in Battery Park, New York, and went on to create the award-winning, not-for-profit Big Apple Circus.
