For nearly a century and a half, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus brought joy to countless children and adults with their unforgettable traveling performances. One untold story through the ages was about the first family of acrobats that traveled with this circus as told in the drama The Amazing Vitas!
With the family patriarch, Kijauna Vita grew up in the Jim Crow South. His vision paved the way to rise above to bring joy all over the United States. The Vita family, considered hometown heroes in Chicago Heights, Ill., moved to west Las Vegas and eventually settled in Los Angeles, where they captivated audiences at the circus, and Universal Studios and trained some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
The television series concept was directed by Brandon Yarbrough (The Blvd) and executive produced by Oba Vita at Brush Floor Entertainment.
LRM Online’s Gig Patta was on the red carpet earlier this week for the special sneak preview of The Amazing Vitas! to a select audience and its guest.
