As I mentioned in my last blog entry, I was lucky enough to watch a few dress rehearsals of the new Big Apple Circus show Luminocity. They’ve taken this show on the road to Dulles, Virginia, where I’m sure they’ve already wowed audiences with the beautiful acrobatic feats, exciting animal performances, eye-popping juggling acts, and of course humor that every Big Apple Circus fan has come to anticipate. This show will not disappoint!

Luminocity takes place in exciting Times Square, New York City. Audiences can expect to witness a smorgasbord of all the usual Times Square suspects: the classic hot dog vendor, the stately mounted police, noisy New Years Eve revelers, and of course, a sneaky “flim-flam man” (can you say “pickpocket?”). The acts are simply wonderful. A hand-to-hand duet masterpiece from the Ukraine. A two-woman trapeze from Mongolia. A high wire spectacular from Colombia. From Japan, a 15 year-old juggler who is fluid and astounding. Not to mention an amazing 8-person teeterboard act from Russia with a finale trick that is stunning. Top that off with America’s funniest man, “international man of mirth” Rob Torres. It’s all ringmastered by John Kennedy Kane and with animals trained by Jenny Vidbel. The show is a sure-fire winner. New Yorkers: catch Luminocity when it comes to Lincoln Center on October 25! Buy tickets by clicking here!
