Word on the street is Khaleesi is pissed because Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey took her dragons. The circus is coming to town and the theme of the show is, you guessed it, dragons. So set your animal cruelty consciousness aside and step right up for some classic entertainment. There will be acrobatics, tiny cars, elephants — probably on their hind legs, tight-rope walking — and similarly cool circus-themed shit. All displays will be in tribute to the dragon, which is rumored to make an appearance during the finale. The show is at American Airlines Center (2500 Victory Ave.) and there will be a free (to ticket holders) interactive pre-show, one hour prior to showtime. Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson will be directing the festivities, probably while wearing a top hat and red waistcoat. Depending on how much your child’s love costs, tickets can be purchased for $15 to $100. Visit ringling.com for more information.
