3/30/13: Big Apple Circus Legendarium in Boston

Today we were able to go and see the amazing performers in the Big Apple Circus Legendarium at City Hall Plaza in Boston.  This show is there until May 12th so you have plenty of time to attend.
My favorite part of the show is how close you are to the action with only one ring where all of the action is.  Here are the kids ready for the show.  Maybe Evan will run away with the Circus, he looks like he is ready to with the clown nose.
This was our third time going to the Big Apple Circus and it didn't disappoint again.  The kids were excited. 
I love the cool animals and performers they have in their shows. 
 The exciting opening of the show.
Here is the ringmaster John Kennedy Kane. 
 From the US, Jenny Vidbel handles horses, ponies and dogs with ease.  I have seen her perform with them numerous time and she never disappoints.  
I love that during the show the ringmaster was giving you little facts about the Circus.  They explained the reason why the ring is a standard of 42 feet is because that is the size ring that would allow a horse to get to full gallop. 
The horse bowed!  So awesome.  My daughter was mesmerized. 
 From Argentina, Elayne Kramer was unbelievable.  The way her body bent was unbelievable.
Absolutely amazing! 
Would you believe she even shot a balloon with a bow and arrow with her feet? 
 One act I had never seen was the slack wire.  From China, Zhang Fan did unbelievable things on this slack wire.  Look at him here with a ladder!
 And then on a unicycle on his head.
 From China, the all-female Dalian Acrobatic Troupe did some amazing things on bicycles  including flips over each other.  You have to see it to believe it.  I loved that my son asked me why they weren't wearing helmets after the show.  
 The whole cast was amazing!
Awesome job to all of the cast and crew!  Plus the live music was wonderful. 
 The great thing is LEGENDARIUM is in its annual Boston engagement at City Hall Plaza from Tuesday, March 26 through Sunday, May 12, 2013.  You should definitely take the kids during April vacation.

Remember the clowns' act throughout the show? Well, yours truly was the female audience member who got to participant in their act yesterday. It was a blast, but unfortunately we forgot to bring our camera to capture the fun.
