Waste of money!

I took my daughter and niece to the show in Knoxville, tn and paid over 80 dollars to see what I thought was the better circus only to be highly disappointed. The show was now condensed into 1 small rink. The tightrope walkers we couldn't see because of the lighting set and that they were on a much much smaller rope. There were no clowns, hardly any animals and really not much of a show. The performances were more like a dance routine versus the fun and adventure of a circus. The show was not targeted at the smaller children who wanted to see the clowns and the animals. Instead it looked like an episode of the Power Rangers (hence the name Superheros). The show was a complete let down.

Although Miami has become a predominantly Spanish speaking city, it's not fair to US that still speak English when the tiger tamer comes out and only caters to the Latino's! He communicated with the tigers in Spanish, which is fine, but when you're interacting with the audience IT'S ONLY FAIR THAT YOU SPEAK ENGLISH!!

Audience participation was conducting in Spanish and there was no translator! That was very unprofessional because I paid my money just as well as the others!

*sigh* This review tugs at my heartstrings. Oh for the days when this Ringling company embodied mysteriousness and anticipation.

Remember when the small town population of rural America noticed a train convoy that dazzled the imagination followed by the feeling that something VERY special was indeed in town. The vivid memory of driving down that two lane forgotten road day after day, watching eagerly as tents are erected and cotton candy and ticket booths are placed. Hearing your friends tell you that they drove by last night, and the circus was testing the lights on the attractions only fueled your desire to be first-in-line on opening day. Suddenly, any plans you may have had for the next week seemed so dismal.

The circus is in town...elephants, clowns, tight-rope walkers. And who knows what else???

As you park your car in that grassy area near the front gate, and looked with wonder at what awaits this starry night, all reality becomes blurred. The circus is in town.
