Video: Creating the Stampede at Water for Elephants


The critically acclaimed bestselling novel Water for Elephants has come to life of Broadway in a unique, spectacle-filled new musical. After losing what matters most, a young man jumps a moving train unsure of where the road will take him and finds a new home with the remarkable crew of a traveling circus, and a life—and love—beyond his wildest dreams. Seen through the eyes of his older self, his adventure becomes a poignant reminder that if you choose the ride, life can begin again at any age.

Choreographer Jesse Robb and Circus Designer Shana Carroll share the details behind making the stampede scene come to life in this video. Check it out, then be sure to book your tickets today to see Water for Elephants on Broadway by visiting the show page below.
