A couple of weeks ago, on Saturday, we went to New York City for the last Saturday performance of The Big Apple Circus in Lincoln Center. The theme of the show was Metamorphosis and it was a spectacular show. It was an entirely different show than 2 years ago when we saw them in Lincoln Center and it was filled with fun, death-defying acts and adorable animals. My kids were wide-eyed during the entire performance and my husband and I were just as amazed.
The Big Apple Circus not only impresses with their stupendous performers, but in the way they treat their animals, the way they give back to the community and how they help bring laughter to sick children and the elderly. They even have Autism Friendly shows.
Francesco, The Musical Clown is the first performer to see and he gets right in the audience supposedly searching for his seat. He keeps us entertained throughout the circus and is absolutely hysterical. The quick change Smirnov Duo still has my husband and I shaking our heads with how they do what they did. We saw it but it does not seem possible. There were many performances that had us asking, “How did they do that?” Trapeze artists, contortionists, jugglers and amazing feats of all kinds has us still talking. Ringmaster, John Kennedy Kane keeps us on top of everything under the big top. If you get a chance to attend, you should, it will make memories for a lifetime.
