The Circus is Dead? No... Long Live the Circus! Even though Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will end its 146-year run in May, the circus will live on, in a different form.
Enter the Venardos Circus, run by Kevin Venardos, who was a ringmaster with Ringling Bros. for 5 years. His Cirque du Mobile doesn't have any animal acts, but according to Lawrence Specker's al.com article, it will have plenty of performance art and human feats of strength/agility.
The Cirque du Mardi Gras will run from February 1st - 14th in Downtown Mobile's Alabama Contemporary Art Center.
