Boston: Ringling Bros. – Fully Charged CircusOctober 11, 2012
Have you ever wondered how many clowns it takes to change a light bulb? Well the hilarious clowns from the world famous Ringling Bros. Clown Alley will answer that question with hysterical silly antics at the Fully Charged Circus going on now at TD Garden through Sunday, October 14th.
Included in your ticket price is the pre show, an hour before the show, you can step onto the arena floor to meet the circus performers and see some of the animals. You can learn skills from the stars of the show and get a glimpse of their many costumes. With lots of clowns to keep you entertained, it is a great way to get you Fully Charged and ready for the show to begin.
The many brilliant acts include Tabayara, an amazing animal trainer who stands inside a cage with 12 ferocious tigers, Tabayara jokes about one of the tigers who is just like his wife; "she doesn't listen". He also orchestrated four-ton Asian elephants in a symphony of dance.
The fearless Fernandez Brothers had us on the edge of our seats as we watched them perform daring feats of athleticism on the Twin Turbines of Steel, including jumps and twists inside the moving wheels! They made it look easy and even high fived each other in mid air! One of the brothers performed a 360-degree, flying-forward somersault, three stories in the air, a feat so difficult it has only been attempted by one other person in the 141-year history of Ringling Bros.
On a wire four stories high, Ringling Bros. veteran Mostafa Danguir and his family jumped rope, danced, rode bikes, and performed gravity defying acts that were completely jaw dropping! Mostafa holds many of the world’s high-wire records — and you can see why with his many stunts!
I can see why they call it "The Greatest Show on Earth"! It was very entertaining and over two hours long! We loved every minute of it!! Check Ringling's website to see if a show is coming to a city near you!
