There is nothing like seeing a show you love a second time!
I photographed the Big Apple Circus show when it opened at the Lincoln Center Bandshell in the fall of 2013. It was a terrific show!
And it got even better!
Here are some photographs I took of the show on Opening day (Sunday, 5/18) at Cunningham Park, Queens. It is a beautiful site. You can relax in the park, talk a walk and then go see the circus…It also happens to be ‘warm’ out which adds to the novelty.
The beautiful set was designed by J. Michael Deegan and gives you the feeling of being in Times Square.
Ring Master John Kennedy Kane keeps the show moving along with a perpetual magic sparkle in his eyes.
Ty Tojo juggles so well he is in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Daniel Cyr performs the ‘free ladder’ routine after a ten year break from it.
Pierre Ginet speaks fluently in 5 languages but be careful when speaking with him since he mostly is an amazing ‘pickpocket’.
Mongolian Angels were magnificent in their amazing trapeze act.
The Mongolian Angels were so amazing I had to post another picture.
