The founders of the Big Apple Circus described each act of their special "Circus of the Senses," and their words were beamed into infrared listening devices for audience members with visual disabilities who attended the free performance in Boston. Those with hearing disabilities and developmental disabilities also enjoyed the performance designed for people with special needs. The Sun (Lowell, Mass.)
