Venue and seats were awesome!! There are no bad seats at this venue. The show was fine, would have enjoyed seeing more animals. The stuntmen were good but a little boring and too much of it. The clown as always was great, it was better years ago...continued

The Big Apple Circus dares you to Dream Big

The world’s greatest circus artists are presented under an intimate Big Top, and no seat is more than 50 feet from the ring! Let your imagination soar and summon the most amazing acts — a juggler with a suit to fit his sweet feats of fancy handiwork! A mechanical doll who comes alive in a sinuous balancing act! Spirited horses, frolicsome dogs, and a capybara and porcupine to perk up the sawdust party! Audacious acrobats who astound with athletic grace! Comical conjurors with magical moments of grand illusion! The aerial daring of the trapeze flyers! A singing Ringmistress and the Big Apple Circus Band creating the ringing melodies of memories to last! And Grandma! Yes, Grandma, apogee of comical aspiration and mirthful joy! Your dreams will inspire a Big Apple Circus of living thrills and marvelous delight — a celebration of the imagination — an astonishing circus world of wonder! 

Renaud Doucet, who has performed as an actor, solo dancer, ballet master and choreographer in international dance companies, joins this season’s creative team as director and choreographer. 

The Big Apple Circus annually presents an all-new show featuring renowned circus artists from around the world. This year’s performers come from America, Bulgaria, China, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mongolia and Russia.

The show is 2 hours in length, including a 15-minute intermission.

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.
