RINGLING BROTHERS AND BARNUM AND BAILEY CIRCUS
7 p.m., Alltel Arena. $11-$45.

Here's betting the nearly naked tiger woman, who protested the arrival of the circus a couple weeks back for PETA by hanging out in a cage in the River Market, doesn't dissuade the masses. This particular strand of RBABAB, “Boom a Ring,” is all about interactivity and intimacy. The audience sits close to the action. Kids get picked out to do tricks with clowns. White Bengal tigers stalk just feet away from the front row. Plus: zebras, clowns on flaming bikes, an exotic tiger tamer in a flesh colored body suit, trick elephants, jugglers, amazing feats of balance, gymnastics, Dachshunds, William Tell-style shooting and high flyers. The circus stays in town for five more shows: 7 p.m. Dec. 5; 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dec. 6; and 1 p.m. Dec. 7.
