MIDWAY FLASH! ... MIDWAY FLASH! ... Big Apple Circus Sold at Auction to Sarasota Investment Firm

This just in from Anonymous A, directing us to the Big Apple Circus website:

The Big Apple Circus has selected a bidder – Compass Partners, L.L.C., a Sarasota, Florida based investment firm, with a bid of $1.3M – subject to the approval of the bankruptcy court, before whom we will make our case on February 14. Our choice was based on Compass Partners offering the highest bid and making a compelling case to revive the circus performances consistent with the original Big Apple Circus mission and values: serving family audiences in NYC and on tour, sensitive to accessibility and to differently abled audiences.

The Big Apple Circus winter quarters have already been sold, so the new buyer will have to find a new place for all of the equipment, etc. Wonder if it will be in the same area.
