The Big Apple Circus: The Grand Tour Review

My family had the pleasure of going to see The Big Apple Circus this past weekend and it was AMAZING. Seriously, this show never disappoints and I swear it gets better each year. It definitely is captivating for audiences of all ages.


Whether you are looking for acrobats, animals, clowns, jugglers, or people straight up doing things you would never even DREAM of, The Big Apple Circus has what you're looking for. There also isn't a bad seat in the house (aka tent)!

We all just sat and marveled at the performers' skills. I loved looking over at the kids during the acts. The awe on their faces were priceless. We spent the entire ride home (and the days to come!) talking about the different performers and how funny, interesting, and amazing they were. The talent really is incredible.


I (clearly!) can't say enough good things about the show. Why not go check it out for yourself?

Playing under the Big Top at City Hall Plaza, Boston, the show runs from March 24-May 8, 2016 with tickets starting at $25. The Grand Tour transports audiences to the Roaring 1920s, the advent of the modern travel era, when the most adventuresome began touring the world in ships, planes, trains, and automobiles. With every seat less than 50 feet from the stage, audiences will be awed by the world-class entertainers as they perform breathtaking acts from the four corners of the globe. Clowns, jugglers, acrobats, and aerialists from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America appear with ponies, puppies and more; the troupe sets off on a whirlwind adventure, accompanied by the live, seven-piece Big Apple Circus Band at each performance.
