The final shows in the New York area will be part of the Out of This World show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn from Feb. 23–March 3; the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ from March 8-12; and the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale from May 12-21.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is not the first circus to end operations in recent years. Last July, Big Apple Circus announced that it was unable to continue performances due to lack of funding.
