Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey have hired a Brooklyn psychic to channel one of the most famous circus personalities of them all: P.T. Barnum.
Gemma Deller will channel Barnum and act as his "voice" for his 200th birthday event at Coney Island on July 5th. Deller told The Brooklyn Paper:
“It’s time to communicate with him — I don’t think he’d want it any other way because Barnum did things in a grand and fabulous way. It’s very possible that he is the one orchestrating the meeting — I think that P.T. led Ringling Bros. to me.”
Will this event, dubbed "Illuscination," be the real deal -- or will it be a case of, as Barnum himself once famously said, "there's a sucker born every minute"? You will have to find out yourself at Ringling Bros. “Illuscination," Surf Avenue at W. 21st Street in Coney Island, July 5, 10 am (800-745-3000).
