Update:I've been contemplating on the Circus and generalized it to Hank's Theory of Live Entertainment:
It is better to go see a live performance where the performers are good and you are in a small enough venue that feel like you're part of the event than to go see a live performance where the performers are great but you're just one of thousands in attendance.So to use last night's Circus as an example: some of the acrobatic events included the performers swinging out over the audience on ropes. If they had slipped it's entirely possible they would have landed in our laps. That makes it much more fun than (for the same $10 ticket price) being in the nose-bleed seats at the best Circus in the World. By the same measure Minor League baseball in a little stadium is way more fun than going to some monster arena and having the players look like ants they're so far away.
