Have you always dreamed of joining the circus, or at least seeing one? If so, you’re in the right place! Today on Theresa’s Reviews, I’m sharing the news that Big Apple Circus is visiting the National Harbor in March. You can enter to win four tickets so your family and you can enjoy it together!
Big Apple Circus Comes To The National Harbor
From March 8 to April 1, the Big Apple Circus will perform with a full lineup of global artists and acts. The show is unique for its one-ring, intimate style. No seat is more than 50 feet from the performers! One of the most fantastic acts is the seven person pyramid on the high wire with Nik Wallenda and The Fabulous Wallendas. You can also see the daring quadruple somersault attempted on the trapeze by The Flying Tunizianis. This is the first time in circus history that both legendary feats are performed under the same big top!
Also joining the acts are Dandino & Luciana, a dynamic duo who combine speed, acrobatics and daredevil grace on roller skates; award-winning contortionist Elayne Kramer; master juggler Gamal Garcia; Jan Damm on the Rola Bola; acclaimed Risley acrobats The Anastasini Brothers (who broke the World Record for most flips on Nov. 9, 2017); Ringmaster Ty McFarlan; and circus trainer and presenter Jenny Vidbel, who performs in the ring with 16 horses and ponies as well as six rescue dogs.
The Big Apple Circus 40th anniversary season is directed by Mark Lonergan, artistic director of three-time Drama Desk Award-nominated physical theater company Parallel Exit, with choreography and associate direction by Antoinette DiPietropolo and music direction by Rob Slowik. Tony Award-winning Lighting Designer Jeff Croiter (Peter and the Starcatcher, Something Rotten!), Scenic Designers Rob Bissinger (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, Legally Blonde – Assoc) and Anita LaScala (Magic Mike Live) of ARDA Studio, Inc, and Drama Desk-nominated Costume Designer Amy Clark (Heathers: The Musical, Chaplin) come together to create a most vibrant environment to fit the momentous occasion of the circus’s return.
