I was back in Coney Island for the second time in a weekend last night to see Illuscination, the new Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus show. This is the second year Ringling is at Coney Island; last year's Boom a Ring was the first Ringling show in a tent since the 1950's.
Thanks to Wendy Edwards of Feld Entertainment for the backstage tour, and here's some photos of the show:
My favorite acts were those featuring only people or domesticated animals:
It's definitely a solid show and a great value, and runs through early September. More pictures here.
