Circus Sarasota, in collaboration with the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, will entertain “children-of-all-ages” when an all-star cast of circus artists and entertainers take over the stage at Sarasota’s Historic Asolo Theater Wednesday, June 22 through Sunday, July 31. Showcasing an international cast performing together onstage, the production is entitled “Grandma and Friends!” featuring one of America’s most celebrated comic entertainers, Barry Lubin, a 1974 graduate of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Clown College, and a 2002 inductee into the International Clown Hall of Fame. Lubin’s alter ego is “Grandma,” who has generated raves and recognition throughout the world. Grandma guarantees that audiences will be “rolling in the aisles”!!
Joining Grandma on-stage will be the celebrated Cristiani Family Trampoline act. The Cristiani name is considered circus “royalty” today, as it has been for generations; even the youngest members of the family have performed for audiences in venues from Las Vegas to Berlin, from Tokyo to Stockholm. Next? America’s Circus City, Sarasota! Miss Gena, a fourth generation circus performer, will perform a jazz-inspired juggling act. Her dazzling split-second dexterity makes Miss Gena’s juggling a unique addition to this fantastic show. Also on the Historic Asolo stage will be La Vision: an award-winning acrobatic duo direct from Cirque du Soleil. Their incredible display of human strength, poise and manipulation reflect the circus arts at the highest level. Of course, no Circus Sarasota presentation would be complete without the extraordinary aerial artistry of Dolly Jacobs: The Queen of the air!
