In a review of Circus 1903, Will Longman said: “The circus is something that, when done well, can transcend taste; its human nature to marvel at mind-bending, seemingly impossible performances, no matter your age, background or ability...the tension and danger of Circus 1903 must make the heart feel like its run a marathon.”
