The Children’s Theatre Company production of Circus Abyssinia: Ethiopian Dreams was created by veteran circus performers Bibi and Bichu Tesfamariam. The brothers were featured in Disney’s live-action Dumbo and have toured around the world for the last two years. Now, they’re performing their show about running away to join the circus at the UnitedHealth Group Stage in Minneapolis. Here’s a look at the show.
