The Grand Tour, according to press notes, "transports audiences to the Roaring 1920s, the advent of the modern travel ear, when the most adventuresome began to tour the world in ships, planes, trains and automobiles. The troupe sets off on their own whirlwind adventure, accompanied by the live, seven-piece Big Apple Circus Band."
