Remembering Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey
This contemporary musical presents a haunting, ironic rags-to-riches story of twin brothers separated at birth but growing up together as friends. Although only a few streets apart, the boys come from different worlds and contend with the struggles and privileges of their respective lives. Love for the same girl complicates their friendship as they grow into adults, and the future is unclear as prosperity finds one and failure the other. A narrator warns that a price has to be paid for separating twins: the lives of the blood brothers.
