Even though traditional circuses are disappearing faster than shrimp at a buffet, that doesn’t mean such old-fashioned, eye-popping extravaganzas have gone completely out of style. Just witness the arrival of Circus 1903—The Golden Age of Circus to Boston’s Wang Theatre March 8–12. This stage show harkens back to a different age, taking inspiration from turn-of-the-20th-century spectacles, complete with strongmen, acrobats, knife-throwers and other daredevil performers adorned in painstakingly re-created period costumes. One innovative twist is the addition of life-size elephant puppets—created by the puppeteers behind the Tony Award-winning blockbuster War Horse—that convincingly stand in for the real thing, allowing old-school circus fans to get their fill of retro thrills in the Theatre District this winter.
