NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Greatest Show on Earth is going on in Brooklyn.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus made its stop at Barclays Center in Brooklyn for two days of high-flying fun.

Circus producers and executive vice presidents of Feld Entertainment Nicole and Alana Feld discussed what’s new in “Built To Amaze” with CBS 2′s Alice Gainer on Sunday.

“This year, we have I think one of the most special acts we have in Built To Amaze,” Alana Feld said. “We have husband and wife teams doing incredible hand-balancing feats where the wives are actually balancing their husbands, something that you can’t see anywhere else in the world.”

The Felds also said it’s great to bring the show back to downtown Brooklyn after an extended absence.

“With the Barclays Center being this new arena there, we are bringing Ringling back for the first time in over 80 years to downtown Brooklyn, so we’re just thrilled,” Alana Feld told CBS 2′s Gainer.

Feld Entertainment also just inked a deal with Marvel to produce Marvel Universe Live, where all the superheroes will come to life. That show is expected to open next summer, according to the Felds.

There will be three shows of “Built To Amaze” on Sunday and two on Monday. Tickets start at $20.
