“Big Apple Circus” “Grandma”, Barry Lubin Resigns Over Sexual Misconduct (#MeToo!).
This is pretty incredible, shocking and sad.
We are real familiar with ‘Grandma’ & the ‘Big Apple Circus‘.
Before we started going to ‘Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus‘, on an annual basis, until they shut up shop in 2017, we used to go to the ‘Big Apple Circus‘ — at their Hanover (New Hampshire) performance, until they stopped coming c. 2011.
The main incident, which he had admitted, happened in 2004 and involved a 16-year old aerialist and pornographic photos! Not good. What was he thinking.
That he resigned per se, is a bit confusing in that it appears that he retired a couple of years ago.
Not good. Sure that there are a lot of parents mortified …
Another black eye for today’s circuses just as “The Greatest Showman” continues to do gangbusters at the movies.
