Very bitter sweet watching this. The lion tamer segment was honestly underwhelming in terms of pure entertainment, at least viewing on TV. However, the mastery over the animals is impressive but shows how antiquated the show was, truly for a different era. Watching every act and knowing what's in the back of the entertainers minds that this is it almost kills the act. Hopefully they adapt well after the curtains close.

Yeah it wasn't that great IMHO. I heard most of the audience for the last show was circus performer's families and people associated with the circus either former or current.

No wonder this got some bad reviews when it came to my town last summer.

I'm stunned that the circus lasted this long. As entertainment, a movie works better for me. Some people delight at the sight of exotic animals from around the world, and some people are not.

I'm guessing that most people are in that second group.

Seems like circuses are a thing of the past now. They don't draw as big of a crowd anymore. Such a shame.

Very sad watching this. I've only been to this twice, but it was still an enjoyable experience. Knowing I won't get to take my children to this one day is kind of sad.
