What weighs more than a midsize luxury sedan, probably gets better mileage, and runs on renewable fuels? The correct answer is Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus‘ latest addition, baby pachyderms Romeo and Juliette. The 124th edition of the Greatest Show on Earth will also feature high-wire artists from Russia, royal lions from the U.K., expert acrobats from China, and daredevil Jon Weiss making a unique entrance from a cannon. Enter through the doors at 7:30 p.m.; the circus runs through April 24 at the D.C. Armory, 2001 East Capitol St. NE. $10.50-16.50. (202) 296-7200. (Eddie Codel)
