Saturday May 5, 2012 / 4:30pmBig Apple Circus: Dream Big
How was your experience?
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 like a real person, a person supposedly getting flattened in a box, and a lost little girl). The acrobats, high wire act and animal acts were all great, but the other performances were lackluster and left the pacing of the circus a little flat. I will say that that intimacy of this circus is great - every seat is good and is close to the action in the ring. Grandma the clown came into the stands at intermission to mingle with the audience.
