Newsweek: The Circus
Newsweek Special Editions is proud to present The Circus, a 100-page look at 110 years of the Greatest Show on Earth. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey may have let the curtain fall once and for all, but the circus is alive and well as a truly American form of entertainment. We trace its most famous performers, most amazing showstoppers and most death-defying stunts in 100 pages of exclusive content including photos, circus history and a look at the Christmas blockbuster The Greatest Showman in a must-have for any fan of the unique experience that is the circus. From acrobats to daredevils to a close look at the father of the American Circus, P.T. Barnum, this special edition has all the excitement of the big top.
