Circus and the Art of the Amazing
Historian Dominique Jando explains why the circus is an important part of our culture.
Big Apple kids tell us what they like about growing up circus.
Clowns are never sure what's funny until the moment of truth - in front of an audience.
Amid the final performances, we hear about everyone's plans for the future. Many will be leaving Big Apple Circus. Some have consciously chosen a different path. Others have no idea what they're going to do next. As the trailers pull out of the lot, and the tent comes down for the last time, we join in the time-honored circus farewell: not "goodbye," but "see you down the road."
