Brighton Beach Venue Offers Holiday Cheer - and Circus - to Families of New York City's Heroes


By The Millennium Theatre

Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2011

NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Millennium Theatre, a 1,400-seat venue in the heart of South Brooklyn, will present a one-of-a-kind Holiday Circus, an event featuring nationally and globally renowned circus acts. In a gesture of gratitude for the support the venue receives from its host city, Millennium Theatre's management will be giving away 1,000 free tickets to the families of fallen New York City servicemen, police and firefighters.
"We are very fortunate to have enjoyed so much recent success," remarks Dr. Lev Paukman, the theater's owner. "We're also very fortunate to be able to give something back to the community that supports us and the families of those who lived and died keeping us safe."
A departure for the venue — best known for bringing Russian-language acts to New York for the enjoyment of Russian-speaking audiences — the debut of the Holiday Circus Extravaganza represents high-quality family entertainment, just in time for the holiday season.
A new holiday tradition
Among the acts scheduled to perform is Jay Mattioli, a unique and energetic magician who first reached a national audience when he became a finalist on America's Got Talent; his performance combines magic with audience interaction, comedy, and dance. Also scheduled to appear is the internationally renowned Ukrainian clown troupe and "World Clown Champions," known as Mimirichi.
With a running time of 90 minutes that is perfect for family outings, the Holiday Circus will feature these acts and more at ticket prices from $25 to $55. The first of the 22 performances will take place on December 22nd as an open rehearsal, when as many as one thousand seats in the theater will be filled by family members of heroes who died serving their country and communities.
Tickets and invitations are being made available to these recipients through charitable organizations.
"The Russian and Russian-speaking communities have supported us so much, and we owe our success to them," says Paukman. "With the Holiday Circus, we will expand our audience while retaining the heritage we cherish. But most importantly, we hope we can bring some joy to those in grief, who are missing their departed heroes at this important time of year for families."http://holidaycircus.com Read more: http://www.sacbee.com/2011/12/14/4122112/brighton-beach-venue-offers-holiday.html#ixzz1gcDHnc8q
