About this show

The spectacular Big Apple Circus is back in town for its 31st season with Play On! -- a brand new, magical music box of a show! Play On! is a circus symphony of astonishing acts and side-splitting laughter, propelled by a jazzy mix of classical, soul and rock & roll from the best circus band in the land! While the title is from Shakespeare (If music be the food of love, play on!), Play On! is pure circus, featuring the world's finest artists under a classic Big Top tent, performing in the intimate setting of a single ring! There are high-spirited Colombians on the flying trapeze; an acrobatic Chinese ballerina, pirouetting on top of her partner; jazzed-up juggling twins from America; Russians springing skyward from their Russian barre; a talented troupe of Italian dogs; and the breath-taking exploits of Big Apple Circus equestrians vaulting onto galloping horses. Not to mention our incomparable paragon of love and laughter, Grandma the Clown! No seat under the Big Top is more than 50 feet from the ring, so even if you're very small you won't miss a thing -- it's the finest family entertainment around!
