My family and I are huge fans of the Big Apple Circus and always enjoy seeing performances. We attended a performance recently of their new show, Metamorphosis, and absolutely loved it.
Francesco the Clown was funny and sweet. Francesco does a lot of cute bits and interacts with the audience. While we do miss Grandma the clown, we enjoyed Francesco’s antics. John Kennedy Kane, as always, does a great job as the Ringmaster. I love how they integrated the butterfly design into his Ringmaster suit (very creative).
As always, animal trainer Jenny Vibdel shines. She does a wonderful job with her animals (all rescue animals) and we were pretty excited to see what was going to happen.
I shot some quick video – this show is excellent, but sometimes you need to actually see it:
