NEWARK—Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Barnum’s FUNundrum! (sm) this weekend in Newark at the Prudential Center. The circus features 130 performers from six continents, almost 100,000 pounds of performing pachyderms, cowboys, pirates, and mermaids.
Among the show’s highlights:
- 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.
- the Puyang troupe from China bounce, flip, and twirl to new heights on a two-tiered trampoline.
- the body benders fit three humans in a cube the size of a milk crate.
- the Mighty Meetal, the strongest man in the world, lifts over 1,200 pounds.
The show moves to the Izod Center in East Rutherford from March 10-14. Prices start at $15 at both venues. Tickets are available at ringling.com, all arena box offices, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com.
