Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
Celebrating two decades of keeping American traditional circus alive, the legendary Bindlestiff Family Cirkus brings its diverse roster of the world’s finest circus, sideshow, vaudeville, and variety talent to the Capitol!
Since 1995, co-founders Stephanie Monseu and Keith Nelson have traveled the world, bringing a unique hybrid of vaudeville, circus and sideshow spectacle to theaters. An evening of jugglers, acrobats, contortionists, plate-spinning, sword-swallowing, brain twisters and other risk-taking feats set to live music combine to create an interactive afternoon of fun for the entire family.
Bindlestiff Family Cirkus harkens back to the heyday of the traditional American Circus touring the country by caravan while offering its own artistic twist. It’s earthy, gritty, and celebrates the sideshow’s odd novelty acts in an engaging and participatory way that you don’t find in other types of circus.
The New York Times said the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret is, “old-fashioned variety entertainment of the sort Ed Sullivan so astutely scooped up, but with twists,” while TIME OUT NY exclaimed that, “this troupe of circus artists will remind your family what the circus is really about.” Come one, come all and get your tickets now for the Cirkus!
