A year ago, the Big Apple shrank a little. Big Apple Circus, which opened in 1977, had amassed more than $8 million in debt and did not produce a fall show. A crowdfunding campaign sputtered, and the circus filed for bankruptcy. But after a successful auction, Big Apple Circus has returned to Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center with its, well, core sensibilities intact.
Big Apple Circus has switched from nonprofit to for-profit, but on a Saturday this month, the big top looked more or less the same. The souvenir stand had stayed modest; the portable toilets were unimproved. Concessions were of the chips-popcorn-churro variety, though the Dippin’ Dots came in a glowing cup, which seemed troubling. There was also a small booth selling beer and wine, where a few of the parents had lined up. At 11 a.m., some people find the circus taxing.
