The show took place in the Green Parking Lot of Turner Field and will began at 7:30pm as Chairman Bell makes his grand entrance into the big top riding an African Elephant.
Bell explained that, “As a young man growing up in the segregated south I would never had envisioned such a world class production featuring performers that truly reflect the wonderful, universal society that we all exist in today. I am fulfilling a boyhood dream of mine.”
