Review: Big Apple Circus METAMORPHOSIS

by Desha Winborne

For  New Yorkers the days of fun in the sun are officially over for 2014. The time has come for some indoor fun, and what is more fun than the circus? The Big Apple Circus has set up shop in Lincoln Square for your amusement. For over 30 years the creative forces behind this entertaining show have delighted audiences with their ever-changing act. This year’s theme “Metamorphosis” is all about the art of illusion. We visited the circus on Saturday afternoon and had an amazing time re-visiting our youth. We had premium seats right up front, but there are no seats more than fifty feet away from the one ring, so any seat is a great seat. The one ring concept and limited seating allow for a more intimate experience as you can clearly see each illusion up close. For those moments in the production where the crew needs to set up for the next act, Francesco the musical clown keeps the crowd enthralled with his antics. From his silly xylophone suit to his impromptu game of volleyball with the audience this clown will keep you laughing and completely distracted. We were so distracted by him we didn’t even see that the ring had been set up with a spinning airplane for one of their top acts.

This recession is creating two movements with today’s generation. Many were told by our parents to study hard, get a degree, and we’d find a job. We believed if you do what you love, money will come.
Not that this advice is not true, they just forgot to tell you the other half. You’re going to have think on your own and fight for it.  There is no handbook. College does not equal a career.  As a result, many are angry feeling duped and unprepared for today’s market.
