The Big Apple Circus, http://www.bigapplecircus.org, celebrating its 30th Anniversary season, proudly presents Celebrate! -- a brand-new show under its famous Big Top tent at Lincoln Center, New York City! In the intimate, theatrical focus of Big Apple Circus's single ring, the world's greatest performers are throwing a 30th birthday bash.

Big Apple Circus

    Artistic and Creative Directors Paul Binder and Michael Christensen have gathered an amazing cast of extraordinary performers, who bring thrills and delight from ten countries around the globe. Come enjoy Kris Kremo, lauded as the finest solo juggler alive, Fumagalli, international star and clown prince of the world, Cong Tian and his incredible balancing feats on a slim slack-wire, the astounding Kovgar Troupe, rocketing to the top of the tent from their teeterboards, and of course our beloved Grandma the Clown (Barry Lubin). There'll be hula-hoops on swinging hips and flashy juggling wonders, capering dogs and high-prancing horses, soaring aerial acrobats, hilarious hi-jinks, amazing feats of strength and agility -- and no one sits more than 50 feet from ringside, so even if you're really small you won't miss a thing! Directed by renowned Canadian director Michel Barette, with a live, original musical score by award-winning Broadway composer Michael Valenti, the Big Apple Circus is back in town!
