|Disclosure: I received 4 free tickets to attend this show for my review. All thoughts are my own.|
I finally went to see The Greatest Show On Earth and I was able to share it with my family. :)
We got to the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Ca for the first show of the tour. Opening Night! I could have skipped my way there, as I felt like a little girl again. My kids weren't sure what they were in for and neither were me and The Hubby, really, but it was truly Built To Amaze.
It wasn't in the Big Top the way I had always imagined it, but it was amazing none the less. Opening night of Ringling Bros. was over the top and super entertaining. Everywhere you looked there was something to made you turn your head and open your mouth in awe. Clowns, a Ringmaster that can sing so good, dancers, acrobats and CLOWNS!
There were stunning horses, poodles, elephants, rabbits, and tigers that would follow the commands of their handlers with nothing but poise and grace.
I think my favorite part of the whole show were the tigers and elephants. These are HUGE animals that wouldn't normally do something like be in a circus, but they really stole the show. My kids were all laughs and giggles throughout the entire show.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is in the Bay Area right now, so make sure you head to Ticketmaster and pick up tickets and go spend time with your family!
