Big Apple Circus
While living the life of a peripatetic juggling duo in 1970s Europe, Paul Binder and Michael Christensen had a dream: a non-profit circus that would combine community outreach with shows by the world’s best performers. Today a rotating cast of acrobats, clowns, and daredevils tour with a menagerie of exotic animals. Led by animal trainer Jenny Vidbel. The circus’s dogs perform sprightly routines, learned under humane training regimens based on positive reinforcement.
The Hub City Spectacular is part of State Theatre’s Family Day Festival, held on President’s Day. In addition to circus shows, families can enjoy a host of activities under the Hub City Big Top, set up in front of the theater on Livingston Avenue. The Big Top offers food, free face painting and balloon animals, as well as live characters from children’s shows.
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from “the ravages of time.” Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s when disco balls replaced light fixtures. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue’s signature dome.
