The Show Must Go On: Judge Rescues Big Apple Circus from Bankruptcy by Approving Sale
The show will go on for the Big Apple Circus.
A judge approved a deal that will lift the circus out of bankruptcy by selling its tents, equipment and intellectual property.
Big Top Works posted the winning bid of $1.3 million at an auction last week.
Last July, organizers behind the show said they were packing up their tent and trampolines after a last-minute "Save the Circus" fundraiser failed to make enough money for the 2016-2017 season.
The circus now hopes to make its return to Lincoln Center this fall.
