It involves death-defying feats, wild animal acts and, always, some jaw-dropping moments that elicit a collective gasp.The “it,” of course, is the circus.And this season, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus’ “Dragons” arrives in Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center on Feb. 22 as spectacular as ever.Who knew that behind this gigantic production are now two young women, both under 40, who are in large measure responsible for making the circus live up to its familiar and ambitious anthem: “The Greatest Show on Earth.”
