If you’re a kid at heart, you’ll adore the Yakov Moscow Circus and think it's the best thing to do in Branson. Part fairy tale, part circus, it transports you to Soviet Russia where a Moscow Circus clown falls in love with a ballerina and yearns to start a new life with her in America. While Russian-born comedian Yakov Smirnoff reads the tale to the audience via video screen, actors play out the story on stage. The action runs from flowing ballet and vigorous Russian dancing to fire-jugglers, and sometimes, bicycle-riding bears . The entire audience becomes part of the show when you’re invited to dinner at the Moscow Circus’ gala send-off to America. With amazing efficiency, servers distribute boxed meals of tasty Russian soup, meatballs, potatoes and dessert to 1,800 people seated in the theater. If you happen to visit Branson when the Moscow Circus is dark, choose from several other shows that especially appeal to kids. Among them are the amazing Acrobats of China, the Dixie Stampede and the Legend of Kungfu.
