Saturday night we had a blast at The Big Apple Circus at City Hall Plaza in Boston. Our drive in was easy and we pre-paid for parking at the Government Center parking garage just steps away from City Hall. If you drive in, you should park there, too – it’s $11! Best deal in town!
The Boy wasn’t interested in the clown noses, but that didn’t stop The Texan.
Something tells me that we’re going to be the parents that are quick to embarrass their teen! (YAY!)
We enjoyed the entire production, and the fifteen minute intermission broke up the two-hour show nicely. Expect to see beautiful horses:
And there are amazing displays of strength and beauty:
And a very funny clown:
The tent is heated (or cooled, if the weather warms up around here) for comfort, there are restroom facilities, affordable snack options, and BEER for the grown ups! You can see that The Boy is enjoying the $6 popcorn tub.
It’s the vivacity! It’s the velocity! It’s the LUMINOCITY — the All–New Show from the Big Apple Circus! Now in its 36th Season, the Big Apple Circus celebrates the vitality of life at the city epicenter, the Crossroads of the World! Catch all the verve, the high-spirits and racing-pulse thrills of the World’s Greatest Circus Artists in one ring under our intimate Big Top, where no seat is more than 50 feet from ringside! The Big Apple Circus presents LUMINOCITY in its annual Boston engagement at City Hall Plaza from Tuesday, March 25 through Sunday, May 11, 2014.
Venture within the hubbub at the heart of Gotham, where the restless tide of humanity rushes through canyons of skyscrapers and shoals of billboards: The dog-walker, whose rowdy pups perform amazing tricks! Businesswomen who arrange to meet, soaring high above on a double trapeze! The rube, a clown-prince among peers, celebrating the mirth of life! Revelry at New Year’s Eve, with teeter-board acrobats flying like fireworks! and a chic couple of wire-walkers suspended mid-air for the event! The humble repairman, climbing the ladder of his imagination! The mounted policewoman, directing a cavalcade of steeds! The flimflam man with his quicksilver moves! The food cart vendor, juggling his produce! Construction workers assembling athletic poses of incredible strength! The celebrated Big Apple Circus Band, under the baton of maestro Rob Slowik, provides the lively musical soundtrack, and your cosmopolitan Ringmaster, John Kennedy Kane, will conduct your tour through this luminous cityscape. Run away and join the Big Apple Circus this season for a dazzling, unforgettable spectacle of wonder, merriment and joy!
Remember, you can purchase tickets here. The show is running through May 11.
