This is the story of a great performer, producer, showman and entrepreneur. If you are not lucky enough to be part of the generation who saw Ron Urban in his prime, this book will intrigue you. Prepare to make friends with a remarkable man and his family. His life is not only the story of a world-traveling entertainer. It is also a lesson in determination, the importance of a strong work-ethic, the constant effort to make wishes come true, and the zeal it takes to become a famous personality in show business.

From his teens until retirement, Urban traveled the globe performing in the most luxurious places on earth. He pioneered Theater on Ice, produced show segments for Holiday on Ice, had his own ice shows, worked seasons at major amusement parks and established Rent-A-Rink, where his company installed ice rinks anywhere, even at the White House.

His career encompassed performing in supper clubs, night clubs, cabarets, dinner theaters, and spectacular casino productions. His travels took him around the world to all the first-class locations, many of which no longer exist. Urban deserves great recognition, not only in the world of magic but in so many other aspects of show business. He was a consummate performer, a first-class attraction with an unusual act, and someone who worked constantly throughout the world.

You will be amazed at his drive and determination, his many shows, and a legacy that serves as an example that could well be followed by many young performers today. Ron Urban and his gracious wife, Monica, brought colorful, dignified theatrical performances to the world. You will agree after reading this book that he is indeed, "The Urban Legend."
