  1. Blowing alot of smoke. Come on. This show is gradually going down the tube and here they are bringing in production peoplr that are totally unecfessary and at expense they certainly can't afford and with a list of ho-hum acts of no credibility. I note they are even talking about a porcupine that has done nothing yet and am sure the horse trainer is busy with practising all new theme, tricks and I suppose the Costume dept. can come up with some original wardrobe, By looks of act rundown there isn't much to costume. Writing a "script" for what. Rehearsal for sound and lighting. What a joke. I have been injvolved with some of the finest put together circuses in America and generally it took about an hour or so to rehearse the whole thing and wat great shows they were. Think Hanneford, Zerbini, Bauer, Big E. Wonder what is happening in their two summer and winter quarters. I am sorry but being an old pro I cannot justify this bullshit. They don't even put on a "spec" and there are a variety of ways to walk thru a "finale" takes about fifteen minutes. Glad I got this off my chest. I was there and can remember some fine BAC productions but as of late alot of smoke.They have never had to sell tickets. What a free ride.
