ABC-TV, Channel 7 in NY, did a 30 minute special on the new Ringling Blue Unit show last night, hosted by Bill Evans.
There was virtually NOTHING on the clowns.
I don't think that I have ever seen a television special on circus that so studiously avoided one of the very basic components of classical circus. I'm curious if the deletion was on the part of the circus or by choice of the television producers.
Either way, it's surprising to see Ringling clowning so obviously marginalized.
