P.T. Barnum, never a man given to an excess of modesty in professional matters, likely would have no problem with being the subject of “the Biggest Birthday Bash in Circus History.”
And that’s just how the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus bills “Barnum 200,” the show it will present today through Sunday at the Mobile Civic Center.
“This is arguably our greatest show in probably 20 years,” said ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson
“I think with this show, it’s sort of a reminder to the American public of the majesty of Ringling Bros., the importance of Ringling Bros., the artistic intelligence of Ringling Bros. and the genius of P.T. Barnum, whose 200th anniversary we’re celebrating,” Iverson said.
