REVIEW: The Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus is "OVER THE TOP" GREAT!

Last night, my son and I went to the Palace of Auburn Hills for the opening night performance of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey "Over the Top" Circus.

The show was fabulous. It was like a high tech video game come to life with booming bass music, high tech monitors showing images that coordinated with the acts, virtual "rings" (as in the typical 3 ring circus) that appeared and disappeared as needed, beautiful stage costumes, amazing trick horse riders, dozens of motorcycle riders who performed amazing tricks on the ground and in the air, pyrotechnic explosions, and unexpected confetti drops - it was totally OVER THE TOP!

For the traditionalists, this circus still has the old favorites of crazy clowns, dog and pony acts, talented pigs, dancing elephants and amazing tiger acts. I did not know how Ringling Bros. were going to top last year's "Bellobration" circus, but this year's "Over the Top" show is completely retooled and brings a totally unique experience.

The Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey "Over the Top" Circus will be at the Palace of Auburn Hills through this Sunday, November 22nd. Please don't miss it...
