Circus strongwoman seeks phone books to save show
BLACKPOOL (Reuters) – A circus strongwoman who rips up telephone directories as part of her act has launched an appeal for 500 phone books to ensure her show can go on.
German-born Sylvia Brumbach, known as The Woman of Steel, says she is about to run out of books after destroying over 100 at Blackpool Tower Circus.
“I just brought 200 over from Germany … I’ve used over half of them already,” she told Reuters.
Brumbach, who says she can tear a directory in half in around 30 seconds, has placed ads in local newspapers appealing for more books.
“You have to find the right point to rip, the book must not be too old and the spine must be tough, not wobbly,” she said.
