I'm Glad I'm Not on the Clean-up Crew

Circus maximus! 'Ben Hur Live' brings horses, eagles, chariots to stage - �Celebs - MSN CA: "It has a cast of hundreds, dozens of horses, gladiators, a sea battle and a live chariot race.

A stage version of 'Ben Hur' is opening Thursday at London's 02 arena before going on tour across Europe. German producer Franz Abraham has worked for 15 years to create 'Ben Hur Live', which features music by Stewart Copeland, former drummer with rock band The Police.

Copeland said the show was 'more of a circus of Ben Hur' than a play. In addition to thoroughbred horses, the cast features donkeys, eagles and chickens."
