Cirque du Homestead
What do you get when you combine three rings, a big top, some dexterous elephants, and a guy with a bodacious top hat? No, not overambitious hard-core porn. Its the circus! And though you might think youve seen it all before, this aint no Ringling Bros.; its the Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars. This production is more Las Vegas show than sideshow, with spectacles that will leave you wanting to fulfill your lifelong dream of running away from home to join the circus.
Today and tomorrow at the Homestead Sports Complex, Cole Bros. is bringing 100 minutes of daredevil motorcyclists, Beijings Bungee Divers, the Guatemalan Ponce Family Flyers, and Zarina the woman who shoots out of a cannon. And dont worry -- they havent forgotten the requisite cotton candy, hopped-up ringmaster, clowns, horses, and acrobats. Get free tickets for the younguns through www.freekidstickets.com, or pay $12 at the gate. But you dont have to be a child to enjoy the three-ring shenanigans; your ticket costs $17. Its available at the box office the day of the show. Otherwise call 1-888-332-5200, or visit www.tickets.com.
