Kid-favorite characters like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man and Wolverine come to life in this a new live arena show that lands in Izod Center on Thursday and follows with four-day stints in Barclays Center and Nassau Coliseum.
Given unprecedented backstage access by Feld Entertainment, host and WABC-TV’s meteorologist Bill Evans takes viewers on an incredible, thrill ride as Marvel Heroes and Villains do battle to save the world. With movie-like stunts performed right before their eyes, audiences are catapulted into the world of Ironman, Captain America, Spiderman, Wolverine, Thor, Hulk, Loki, Green Goblin and Red Skull, just to name a few.
The rigging is ready. The popcorn is hot. Celebrating the Year of the Dragon with as much Chinese fervor as Cirque Shanghai ever mustered, this year’s edition of the greatest show on earth pulls out the stops to dazzle and delight–even more so than in past Chicago tours of this unashamedly complete circus spectacular. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey have come to town(s)—Rosemont and Chicago to be precise. It’s Halloween, Christmas and New Year’s Eve all in one splendid setting.
Forget Punxsutawney Phil. Forget Staten Island Chuck. They are so February. For a true indicator of the advent of spring, nothing beats the arrival of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. And this year’s edition, titled “Zing Zang Zoom,” is an artful eyeful, liberally spiced with mystifying magic.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, step right up and meet the no-ring circus. For the first time in its history, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus will present a new show to its audiences without three rings, or two — or even one.
In the Catskills, at least, there are a few people who will not appear on television at any price, particularly if it interferes with lunch.
