I attended the show the night of the collapse. I sat on the North side in the second row "A" and was not injured. Did anyone else notice how crammed together the seating was? I am 6 feet tall and of slender build and I could not sit back in my seat. There was simply no room for my shoulders between my neighbors. I had to sit at an angle or sit forward during the entire show. Perhaps there were more chairs, or smaller chairs than previous years? Did anyone else notice this? The person next to me said the seats were more uncomfortable than previous years.
August, 2015.
The performance was thrilling and executed beautifully.
But I would never go again, the seats are the most uncomfortable, almost painful, example of the company not caring about the audience.
I'm 60+ and this is only the second time in my life I left a performance early. I left at the intermission due to the extremely miserable almost painful seats.
Other patrons also seemed to be very dissatisfied with the level of comfort.
Truly a shame, because the kids performing were great.
Evidently the staff is uncaring regarding audience comfort.
Some seats had an attempted fix, they had portable flat seat cushion. I asked another patron if they helped and the answer was no. Cushions only on some seats. They are thin and useless.
I hope I am conveying to you how miserably uncomfortable the seats are.
I hope the staff of circus juvinatis remedies the big problem.

If not they are using the audience in an uncaring way. So please fix the problem.
