Hirson celebrated its 40th anniversary last year; the original Broadway production, directed by Bob Fosse, snagged nine Tonys and ran for nearly 2,000 performances before closing in 1977. It hasn’t been back to the Great White Way since, but the current circus-inspired American Repertory Theater revival helmed by ART artistic director Diane Paulus deserves to get there.
