REVIEW QUOTES

Ben Franklin and Joshua Dean have put together a total, complete, unique, distinctive, and thoroughly entertaining show in “The Ring Bros.”…and they perform it with every ounce of talent, skill, and enthusiasm they possess (which is abundant, to say the least.) An “Intimate Cabaret Spectacle” was what I was expecting in “The Ring Bros.”, and is exactly what I got…and it came with the highest level of professionalism and expertise. Every detail of their show is designed to insure that the audience is entertained and involved, which is achieved to perfection. Their passion and joy for what they do is contagious and magnetic, and the audiences feel it and respond to it…with laughter, awe, applause and standing ovations. –

Two of the most talented and creative aerial duos that I’ve ever had the privilege of working with!”
