CIRCUS

Cutting Down the Tightwire

  • Aired: 10/14/2010
  • 05:02
  • Rating: NR
In the weeks before the season premiere, the Big Apple Circus production team works long hours honing and tightening the program, a process devoted to rearranging acts and making tough decisions. Beloved wire walker Sarah Schwarz is devoted to her craft, so it wasn't easy when she was asked to cut her act down by two minutes -- practically half the length.
