Here's the thing: At $25 per adult, ticket prices are not that “cheap.” But we know many Miamians are looking for fun things to do after a year of lockdown and may be willing to pay a little extra.
General admission costs $15 for children. Those younger than age 1 enter for free but don't get a separate seat (must be seated on an adult's lap, according to organizers). VIP PODS, with four front-row seats to each pod, cost $120. There will be snacks and drinks available for purchase.
Show times are: 7 p.m. Monday-Friday (except Tuesday); 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
What about safety protocols? Well, Circus Lena has some rules: You must wear a face mask and maintain the required social distance of at least 6 feet. The audience capacity has been reduced from its typical 660 guests to 200 patrons seated in parties of two to five, and hand sanitizer is available on-site.
According to the official website: “While the pandemic is still with us, Circus Lena will be taking measured steps to re-open our shows to restore the livelihoods of our artists and employees as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, following closely the guidance from government and medical experts … we ask that you only visit our show with others you have quarantined with. If you are not feeling well or have been near someone with COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and consult your doctor.”
