Sparks fly in “Under the Big Top,” and so do towers of flames, gravity-defying clowns, and pieces of the performers' costumes. Choreographed by David Garcia—a veteran dancer who has appeared on Broadway, on television, and in music videos—the show follows a tormented circus performer struggling against the tyranny of her ringmaster. Audiences ride a roller coaster of emotion as they watch acts including a comedic, risqué emcee and an eerily enticing school of murderous mermaids. In lighter moments, the Burlesque Balloon Beauties descend on the metaphorical three-ring to inspire appreciative laughs and polite catcalls.
