20 May 1977, New York Times, pg. 22:
Circus-minded New Yorkers who have wondered how it would be to perform - and haven't we all? - have their chance tomorrow morning at 147 Spring Street, starting 8:30. Acts of all kinds and ages are invited to audition for the city's first resident sawdust company, the Big Apple Circus, which makes its debut the weekend of the Fourth of July in Battery Park. The new one-ring project, which has partial civic and business backing, will be quartered in a specious tent at the Battery for seven weeks, performing thereafter in other boroughs.
There's one restriction for circus applicants: Animal acts are limited to small species. Judging the entries will be the stars and founders of the Big Apple troupe. They include Philippe Petit, who walked a wire between the World Trade Center towers; Nina Kasavina and Gregory Feldin, acrobatic clowns formerly with the Moscow State Circus. and Paul Binder and Michael Christensen, jugglers of "Sesame Street."
