Robin’s Show Recommendation — FUNUNDRUM (Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus)
All Aboard For Fun! Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Barnum’s FUNundrum! First Circus Produced by Feld Sisters!
The Greatest Show On Earth just got Greater with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Barnum’s FUNundrum! Featuring 130 performers from six continents, almost 100,000 pounds of performing pachyderms, cowboys, pirates, and mermaids, Barnum’s FUNundrum! is a super-sized spectacle that my family and I very much enjoyed.
This show celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the legendary P.T. Barnum, the Greatest Showman on Earth!
Ringmaster and New York City’s own Jonathan Lee Iverson, invites the audience to leap aboard the Ringling Bros. train and go on a family FUNtastic adventure to meet exotic characters and witness thrilling performances that attempt to answer Barnum’s FUNundrum, “What special wonders create The Greatest Show On Earth?”
See the Flying Caceres attempt to complete the elusive quadruple somersault on the flying trapeze; a feat that hasn’t been mastered in over three decades. Watch the Puyang troupe from China dazzle with a stunning display of dexterity as they bounce, flip, and twirl to new heights on a two-tiered trampoline. Be amazed as you witness the impossible contortions of the body benders who fit three humans in a cube the size of a milk crate. Enjoy the wondrous ability of the Mighty Meetal, the strongest man in the world, as he lifts over 1,200 pounds. And savor the stupendous skills of the hand balancers featuring Duo Fusion, a married pair of performers with a twist; the wife does the heavy lifting.
Arrive an hour before show time for the All Access Pre-show – FREE to all ticket holders – and meet performers and animals, learn circus skills and enjoy a taste of the performance before the show even starts!
