A new musical, based on Sara Gruen's novel of the same name, is in development. In this Depression-era novel, young Jacob Jankowski’s life is dramatically changed when he is tossed by fate onto a train that is the home of the “Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.”

For The Record:

A 2011 film adaptation starred Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson & Christoph Waltz. A developmental Lab was scheduled to be held in May 2020 in NYC, but cancelled due to COVID. It played its World Premiere at the Alliance in Atlanta in June 2023.
