Mr. and Mrs. P.T. Barnum were spotted at Whole Foods in Devon on Saturday, April 19th!
Phineas Taylor Barnum, the “master of humbug” and a magnificent showman of the mid-1800’s, spent his life finding incredible persona and acts to share with his ever growing audiences. He introduced America to Jumbo the Elephant, Jenny Lind the "Swedish Nightingale", the famous "little man" General Tom Thumb and many more.
Mark Bramble took the remarkable story of P.T. Barnum's roller coaster life of success and failure and put them to music by Cy Coleman (lyrics by Michael Stewart) and then liberally mixed in The Circus in this one-of-a kind production, unlike any musical you may have ever seen.
BARNUM opens at FOOTLIGHTERS THEATER on Friday, April 25th and runs four weekends through May 17th. While the show is slated to begin at 8pm each night (2pm on Sundays), Mr. Barnum invites his audiences to arrive 30 minutes early to enjoy the pre-show circus fun. Tickets are available for just $16 at the door or online (to assure your seat in the Big Top) at http://www.footlighterstheater.com/barnum/. Discounts are provided for matinees and those under 18.
