Big Apple Circus: Step Right Up

Last night I was fortunate enough to see the dress rehearsal for the new 29th edition of Big Apple Circus, "Step Right Up".

Unbelievable!

Francesco, Justin Case, Johnny Peers, Joel Jeske (who really outdoes himself) and Barry Lubin ALL IN ONE SHOW! And that's just the comedy! Steve Smith and his team have much to be proud of this morning. They've assembled an amazing cast that have created a truly wonderful show.

Did you happen to see a rather large puppet? How did it look?

Lest you didn't realise, despite the name, Francesco is French, his given name being Francois. He answers to both. Speaks good English, and having done one Big Apple season, should be able to understand you lot too!! (I'm prepared for all your linguistic comments!!)
Yasmine Smart (who is presenting the horses) is a really lovely lady, as well as being easy on the eye.
The entire show looks good on paper, and I'm sure Pat will be ale to tell us if it lives up to those expectations.

The 29th Edition was fantastic...See it when it comes to your city..Of course I'm partial since Barry Lubin "Grandam" is our tent namesake and and will host the 2007 CFA Hershey Convention May 21-25, 2007...D. Jando did the 2007 Convention logo...Go to circusfans.org and pull up the registration form...you will see Grandma with a HERSHEY Kiss as a hat. i though the Wednesday Evening Dress Rehearsal went well.
