Big Apple Circus 2018BigTop Works, the new producers of BIG APPLE CIRCUS, are pleased to announce the return of the beloved circus to Boston, as part of the National Tour stops of the historic and critically acclaimed 40th Anniversary Season.

The full lineup of global artists and acts, including 10-time world record-holding high wire artist Nik Wallenda, will play under the Big Top at Assembly Row, Somerville from April 7-May 13.

World renowned for its one-ring, intimate and artistic style, where no seat is more than 50 feet from the performers, BIG APPLE CIRCUS is passionate about revitalizing the circus for modern-day audiences with unique and astounding human feats, and innovative design and technology.

The 40th anniversary season program features the famous seven-person pyramid on the high wire with Nik Wallenda and The Fabulous Wallendas and the daring quadruple somersault attempted on the trapeze by The Flying Tunizianis – the first time in circus history that both legendary feats are performed under the same big top.

Circus of the Senses Performances
Circus of the Senses, which will take place on Wednesday, April 11 at 11:00 am, offers specially enhanced experiences for audiences who are deaf, blind, deaf/blind, visually impaired, or have cognitive or developmental challenges. The special performances include ASL interpretation, live audio description, pre- and post-show touch experiences, and a Braille program book.

On Sunday, April 8 at 12:00 pm, Big Apple Circus Embraces Autism, a sensory-friendly performance for autistic audience members, will feature lowered light and sound levels, a descriptive social story, and a professionally staffed “calming center” that can be accessed at any point during the show.
