But that’s no reason not to go to this show. If you are local, book your tickets now. (You can opt for the cheap seats – there’s not a bad seat in the house.) The circus is almost over, and you’ll be truly sorry you missed it if you don’t. We found out as we were snapping photos that we weren’t supposed to be snapping photos. The photos on the website are much better anyway. Or check out Scott Raffe’s personal work – his photos of the circus are up at the galleries at the Sheldon Concert Hall. The show was delightful. My stomach flipped up into my throat with every single high wire / trapeze moment – the performers were so close that I felt like I knew them, and as a result I felt very much compelled to squeal with each death defying release and catch. The story line is super funny, the horses are gorgeous (and talented) and there were even two babies no older than the one above in the show.
Don’t kid yourself. She’s got her eye on that trapeze.
