Carnival! Featuring Two Members of Suspended Cirque


This past summer, two very good friends of mine and Michelle’s, Joshua Dean and Benjamin Franklin, performed in the Goodspeed Opera House production of Carnival!

Co-founders of Suspended Cirque (along with Michelle, Angela and Kris), Josh and Ben were featured aerialists in the show — adding a strong cirque aesthetic to the production. Josh created all of the aerial choreography.

Check out the highlight reel of Carnival! from the Playbill website:

Michelle and I went to see the show twice! It was a beautiful production, and the entire cast were absolutely fabulous.

There’s an article on Playbill’s website about the show here, and you can read a very nice interview with actress Lauren Worsham, who plays the show’s lead character Lili, here.

Below are a few official press images from the show (by Diane Sobolewski) that I have collected from Internet.

Thanks Ben and Josh!
