P.T. Barnum, arguably American history's most celebrated showman, said in his 1880 book The Art of Money-Getting, or, Golden Rules for Making Money, 'Let your motto then always be 'Excelsior,' for by living up to it there is no such word as fail.'

There's only one way to tell the story of the life and loves of the man behind the greatest show on earth - with jaw-dropping spectacle and unprecedented grandeur - the way the award-winning Broadway musical Barnum, playing today, August 6-18 at Totem Pole Playhouse does.
