Asolo's "Barnum" also on display at Ringling Museum

With the excitement that the Asolo Repertory Theatre's musical production "Barnum" has brought, be sure to check out the special exhibition of "Barnum: Bally and The Big Top" at the Tibbals Learning Center of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.

The exhibit features all you ever wanted to know about P.T. Barnum and his world-renown entertainment endeavors - including who he branded as the oldest woman in the world and smallest fellow in the world with his never ending humbugs - through a showcase of historic posters, photographs and rare documents. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 daily.

Also, check out Thursday's Weekend section in the Bradenton Herald for a review of the musical.
