Step right up to Circus 1903 – Review and Discount

We went to see the Circus last night at the theatre. Yes, you read that right. The theatre with a circus.

Circus 1903 is at the Wang Theatre in Boston through the weekend (March 8-12).

It was so much fun. It was America’s Got talent with an old-timey feel. There was everything you’d expect to see at a circus: acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, aerialists, high wire, and more. And even elephants! They were puppets, but so well done that there were moments I forgot they weren’t real. Gorgeous artistry and puppetry.

It was a roller coaster of emotions. At times I wasn’t even able to look because I thought someone would fall (and they did!!). Other times, I couldn’t look away. The aerialist on the hoop was one of the most beautiful acts I have ever seen. I had no idea I would be so moved by it. And laughter, the Ringmaster wove everything together seamlessly and with some giggles (admittedly some were provided by my own kid).

I took my three children aged 10, 8, 6. All of them sat through the whole thing with only the littlest getting a bit antsy. It was just over two hours long with a 20 minute intermission. I think it’s also appropriate to go with no kids! It’s good fun.

Naturally, if there was audience participation, my family would be involved…

#liveunlimited Bracelet for the MDA

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is kicking off a fantastic campaign this summer. “Live Unlimited is all about transforming our perceived limits into unlimited possibilities to live life to the fullest; the campaign is inspired by the strength and courage of MDA families who do remarkable things every day despite the physical and societal limits diseases like muscular dystrophy and ALS often create.” Christine Koh at Boston Mamas

I’m spreading the word about MDA and its amazing families, and also inspire everyone to view every day as an opportunity to overcome challenges, doubts, and obstacles and live life to the fullest. We all have obstacles, some more apparent than others. Some we hide. Anyone overcoming an obstacle, big or small should get the encouragement and praise they deserve.

The MDA has developed a partnership with Endorphin Warrior. Endorphin Warrior is making a special limited edition Live Unlimited bracelet — they are stylish, inspirational, and guy-friendly too. During this campaign, Endorphin Warrior will sell these bracelets ($22) with $6 of each sale going directly to MDA.

 

 

I was particularly excited to get my bracelet on the very day that I did something I never thought I would do…run a 5K! I signed up the whole darn family and WE DID IT! Everyone finished. The littlest among us pushing the oldest. It was awesome.
