Boston — You won’t find any elephants, never mind lions, tigers, or bears at the Big Apple Circus, but “Dream Big: Grandma’s Farewell Tour,” now at Boston’s City Hall Plaza, does capitalize on its intimate, one-ring approach to showcase beautiful horses, captivating canines, and some talented newcomers to the spotlight including a prancing porcupine, a happy-go-lucky hog, and a singing capybara. And you can’t help but listen when the largest and probably cutest rodent in the world is at the microphone. (Incidentally, fans of the Big Apple Circus with fond memories of Amy the Elephant will be happy to know that the popular pachyderm is now enjoying retirement in Florida.)

Also on hand is the legendary Barry Lubin who brings his warm and funny Grandma to life – in all her water-spitting splendor – for her final season under the Big Top. It is only fitting that Grandma invites one of her many fans from the audience to duet with her on the Nat King Cole classic, “Unforgettable.”
