Big Apple Circus
Anyone who has ever seen Wim Wender's Wings of Desire knows the mystique of an old-time circus. The Big Apple Circus is one such event. Set under a tent in Lincoln Center, we had front row seats to watch acrobats from China, a dog show from Russia, and a trapeze troupe from Slovokia. The circus, a not-for-profit group whose mission is to serve the community through outreach programs, will be in town until January 18th, and I highly recommend it. The whole family was entranced with the action, but Liv said it best, "It was a one-ring show worth five stars."
