Time Out says

UPDATE: Empire Circus is now on indefinite hiatus. 

A new take on the legendary Bozo the Clown is among the many attractions at the inaugural edition of Remarkable Experiences's Empire Circus, an immersive children-of-all-ages experience at Dumbo's five-story Empire Stores (home to the Time Out Market) and its riverside courtyard. Attendees choose their own paths through a variety of acts in a show directed and cocreated by stage and circus performer Lorenzo Pisoni. The actor David Arquette, who now own the rights to Bozo, serves as the project's creative director along with Gabe Dell Jr.

Those visiting Empire Circus will also be able to make the most of the surrounding Time Out Market New York via a number of "dinner and a show" packages and special discounts.

From November 22 through January 27, VIP ticket holders to the circus will also receive unlimited Happy Hour Pricing at any Time Out Market Bar with an Empire Circus ticket. That spectacular deal will be valid Mondays through Thursdays from 11am–10pm.
