Children Of All Ages. The Greatest Show On Earth just got greater with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents Barnum's FUNundrum next week at the XL Center in Hartford. 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.
This once-in-a-lifetime event celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Connecticut's own, the legendary P.T. Barnum.
Ringmaster Jonathan Lee Iverson, a University of Hartford Hartt School 1998 graduate in voice performance, sings upbeat numbers and invites the audience to leap aboard the Ringling Bros. train and go on a family 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?"
Barnum's FUNundrum provides hours of entertainment that is fun for the whole family for about the price of a movie ticket.
Step right up and 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..
