Hit the sawdust trail with five young brothers from Wisconsin, who daringly take on shyster big tops with honest dealing, battle Barnum & Bailey to the top, and win the hearts of Americans.  From comedy to calamity, hoopla to heartache – and tragedy, this acclaimed musical celebrates their remarkable rise from rags to circus kings.

“A terrifically tight musical book and intelligent lyrics [and] a highly melodic score ... Production numbers are
rousing, the ballads,especially ‘Sunshine and Shadows’ and ‘Stranger is His World,’ are lovely and lyrical ...With proper handling, this show deserves a shot at a Tony.”

“Baron and Lewis hit upon an inventive idea ... It has style, spirit, appealing characters, filled with rousing choruses and tinkling ballads.”
 The Los Angeles Daily News

“A rousing good musical comedy! ... The lilt of David Baron’s always lively, never blatant score carries sounds developed from the big tent ... David Lewis’s lyrics are entertaining and as relevant as his book and dialogue .... Kudos to everybody!”
- Hollywood Drama-Logue

“Charming numbers ---  from the beguiling ‘Lifting the Leather’ to the Weillesque ‘Sunday School Boys.’”
- L.A. Weekly

“A dazzling musical!”
- The Riverside Press-Enterprise
