Circus season has arrived in Brooklyn. Big shots Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is already at the Barclays Center for a two-week run, but that is far from the only big top in town. The borough’s own Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret is tumbling into the Brooklyn Lyceum, and traveling Chinese entertainers the Golden Dragon Acrobats will be swinging by Brooklyn College for a performance of impressive aerial feats. So which show gives you the best back-flip for your buck? Well, that depends if you prefer kangaroos or kazoos.
