"Every crowd has a silver lining" - P. T. Barnum
Wonderful quote, which I found on Johnny Pugh's Facebook Page -- a sparkling midway of some great Bill Carter photos, historic videos and mementos. The spirit of the old Cole soul comes alive!

Big Apple Circus Goes on a Grand Tour, 1920s Style

On the Big Apple Circus website, general information of what is to come for the new season, to kick off as usual at Lincoln Center.

Oddly missing are actual names of the acts.

I find the production concept quite promising.

THE GRAND TOUR is a circus extravaganza set in the 1920s and featuring acts from the four corners of the globe. Ships, trains, automobiles, and airplanes will serve as the backdrop for breathtaking acts of wonder, accompanied by the seven-piece Big Apple Circus Band playing live at each of more than 200 performances. Acts will include clowns, jugglers, acrobats, and aerialists, from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America, as well as domestic and rescue animals, all creating performances that will leave audiences smiling and cheering.

For many years(until this year), Big Apple Circus has opened in Dulles, VA. I have heard that they will probably play only 3 or 4 towns this season.
