In my younger days, the circus coming to town meant the promise of three rings of spectacular entertainment, buckets of popcorn, and dreams of running away from home to be a part of the show. The performers seemed larger than life, attempting feats of strength and bravery that few would even dare. When you needed a little relief, the clowns were there to cheer you up. I get all sniffly with nostalgia just thinking about it.
Today the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus attempts to keep that nostagia alive with its show “Legends.” Combining a variety of acts from around the globe, Ringling Bros. has shrunk the show from 3 rings to 1 (well one and a half). There’s not as much to see, but what you do see is high quality.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey returns to Orlando with LEGENDS, at the Amway Center for several shows January 14 through 18, 2016.
The family friendly event features legendary circus artists performing feats of acrobatics and daring, as well as clowns, animals and more.
