The circus show from yesteryear has fallen victim to the entertainment realities of today.
“Circus 1903” is closing at Paris Theater on Jan. 7. Members of the production were informed late Wednesday that the show would be shut down, and an official announcement was issued this morning. The show ran for about five months.
No details were provided in the closing announcement, but the in-house e-mail notification indicated the show’s producers were unable to forge a long-term deal with Paris parent company Caesars Entertainment to keep the show afloat. As recently as November, the cast had expected the show to run through November 2018. But crowd counts were said to be below the break-even point at the 1,400-seat Paris Theater.
