WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR COMES TO BARCLAYS CENTER JULY 16-20

Mar 20, 2014

BROOKLYN (March 20, 2014) – Dinosaurs once again roam the earth when the spectacular production, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR, based on the award-winning BBC Television Series and produced by Global Creatures, comes to Barclays Center in Brooklyn Wednesday, July 16 through Sunday, July 20. The show is returning to the New York City area for the first time since 2010.

Tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, March 28 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster by visiting www.barclayscenter.com or www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center beginning Saturday, March 29 at noon.

The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators. 

The show that critics have called “awesome,” “spectacular,” and “breathtaking” will showcase changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research, including the likely feathering of some species. Worldwide, more than eight million people have seen this show in 243 cities during more than 2,000 performances.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs.  The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the awesome Cretaceous period.  The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.  It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.
