Ballyhoo Vol. VI, No. 4


Spectacle magazine has been featuring Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus on its covers ever since we began publishing in 1997.  A montage of Maike Schulz’s covers and most dramatic images give a taste of how spectacular all those past productions were.

Editor’s Fanfare:

A look at the state of the American circus today without Ringling Bros.  suggest what we can look forward to in the future.


Most of the good news comes to us from abroad these days.  That seems to be where the most excitement can currently be found.
