ALPHARETTA, Ga. — ¬ Trapeze artists as business women will fly across the city’s skyline, hurriedly moving from meeting to meeting, while dog walkers and their unruly dogs will perform amazing tricks when the Big Apple Circus comes to Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre this month.
Big Apple Circus premieres at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre with an all-new show called “Luminocity.” Performances begin Thursday, Jan. 30 and will run through Monday, Feb. 17 for a total of 28 showings. The show depicts the story of several frenzied citizens living in the imaginary city of Gotham.
Under the direction of ringmaster John Kennedy Kane, talented performers from all over the world including 15-year-old juggler Ty Tojo from Japan and the “criminal clown” Pierre Ginet will help to bring the story of the city to life.
Further creating the cosmopolitan atmosphere, the Big Apple Circus, under the baton of conductor Rob Slowik, provides a lively soundtrack that helps the audience melt into the hectic life of Gotham.
Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre is the third stop for the Big Apple Circus on its “Luminocity” tour. However, the Big Apple Circus has been entertaining audiences for 36 years.
The circus’s Big Top is located in Parking Lot A of the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park. Entrance through the West Gate at 1775 Founders Parkway, off Old Roswell Road in Alpharetta, is suggested.
