As kids, we always dreamed of running away and joining the circus... except that the music was so lame. We wanted to fly high on the trapeze and run around with a gang of tigers... but not listen to old-timey show tunes. Surely, Mom and Dad are glad we let go of our whimsical dreams (still working on buying you that mansion, Mom!), but we can still long to be a Fat Lady or jump out of a clown car. And this week, Cirque Dreams: “Pop Goes Rock” can help us relive the fantasy. Bonus: This carnival-inspired performance — featuring Static Noise from the MTV show America’s Best Dance Crew, body contortionists, and gravity-defying aerialists — is set against more modern-day pop tunes like “Womanizer” and “Rapper’s Delight.” The show runs between March 29 to April 8, with tickets ranging from $24 to $69, available at ticketmaster.com.
