Circus

First of May/One Ring Family (#101)

First of May - Go behind the scenes and meet the fascinating, wildly diverse Big Apple Circus family -- the clowns and the wire-walkers, the front office staff and the rough-and-tumble ring crew -- as they gear up for their annual 350-performance tour.

One Ring Family - Feel the tension mount as rivalries and romances blossom and the circus' first dress rehearsal approaches. The show is nowhere near ready -- and the fate of more than a few performers hangs in the balance. [116 minutes] Closed Captioning
