Big Apple Circus METAMORPHOSIS
Boston City Hall Plaza
We are so excited for the return of the Big Apple Circus. Our family has gone for years – it has that magical circus feel but in a single ring, which means you feel up close and personal with all the performers and acts.
Our daughter especially loves anything that involves gymnastics, acrobats and trapeze. I personally LOVE the quick change act – I can never get enough of that.
We’re pleased to have the opportunity to give one lucky reader a family 4 pack of tickets to the Saturday, March 28th performance at 4:30 pm.
