Get ready folks, the circus is coming to Brooklyn.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will come to Barclays Center for 23 shows from March 20 through April 1.
In its 143rdyear, the circus will bring its new show “Built to Amaze!” to the new arena. Buy tickets here.
So, get ready for the circus to bring elephants, tigers, acrobats and aerialists from around the world to the County of Kings, with a modern twist that will entertain today’s kids:
"We spend a lot of time trying to understand what kids' attention spans are like today," Nicole Feld, executive vice president and producer of Feld Entertainment Inc., the Vienna, Va.-based company that bought the circus in 1967, told the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.
Are you excited?
