    Three Stanley Cup championship banners hang from the rafters of the Prudential Center—a constant warning to visiting teams that the New Jersey Devils sit among the NHL's most elite organizations. Before landing in the Meadowlands, however, the Devils sharpened their pitchforks out west, beginning in Kansas City in 1974 before moving to Colorado two years later. Neither the Scouts nor the Rockies, respectively, managed a record above .500, making their hopes of growing playoff beards a dream as distant as bottle-rocket-propelled skates. In 1987, however, all that changed. In their sixth season in New Jersey, the Devils made the first of 21 postseason appearances in 23 years, sweeping the vaunted Detroit Red Wings in 1995 to win the franchise’s first Stanley Cup title and drape the first banner from the ceiling. During the Devils' 25th-anniversary season in 2006, fans voted that first finals victory as the top moment in franchise history, just barely eclipsing that time Phil landed a sweet parking spot 10 minutes before face-off.

  • UniverSoul Circus
    Ranked among Ticketmaster's Top 25 Most Requested Family Events for five consecutive years, UniverSoul Circus grants an interactive spectacle of acrobatic stunts, dance, and comedy set to popular urban sounds. With its swirling lights and pulsing beats, the circus's resemblance to a blowout concert tour is no accident: production designer Tom Marzullo has created internationally touring stage shows for Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, and Prince. As hosts, a troupe of improv comics slip laughs in between the gasps and draw the crowd even closer into the action. Meanwhile, the production makes jaws drop farther with trained elephants, illusions featuring a live tiger, a head-balancing act from Vietnam, and female contortionists from Ethiopia. These make up just a few of the globally sourced performers, others of whom hail from locales as diverse as Colombia, South Africa, Russia, and Trinidad and Tobago.

  • Big Apple Circus
    Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience. You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
