Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret @The Cutting Room
What a treat! The Bindlestiff Family Circus Cabaret put together an ‘all-star’ lineup of talent for this show!
Directed by Michelle Matlock.
I was in the 2nd row so I didn’t get the best shots from that seat but I will share a few decent ones with you.
The Bindlestiff Family Circus band was so ‘on-point’ for all the acts. Great addition to the show. Live music makes a difference.
Eric Biondo and Robert Cowie.
(Sorry Eric and Robert- Could capture any shots of you from my seat)
Bindlestiff Co-founder Keith Nelson introduced the audience to the show’s lineup.
Multi-talented Chloe Somers opened the show with a beautiful aerial act.
The Great Kaplan (David Kaplan) mesmerized the audience with his magic.
After magically producing a candle it mistakenly (on purpose) caught his suit carnation on fire.
His credits are so long I will just link you to his webpage. A master indeed! Hysterical and very skilled.
After The Great Kaplan’s grandfather’s uke gets destroyed by a rogue bowling ball he gets consolation from Bindlestiff’s Co-Founder and stage manager Stephanie Monseu.
Keith Nelson entertained the audience with 2 classic vaudeville glass balancing stunts.
Chloe Somers returned to the stage by balancing and walking on Champagne bottles
She then rearranged them in a different order/line and balanced/walked on them again.
Chloe Somers was fantastic in her skills.
The Great Kaplan returned to the stage playing a ‘turkey baster’.
Evan Ruggiero played the guitar brilliantly and tap danced with his peg-leg.
Chloe Somers showed her multiple skill set by returning to the stage with her hula-hoop act.
Chloe Somers worked the hula-hoops with such charm and personality.
Keith Nelson performed his 8 spinning plate act.
Keith was successful in keeping all 8 plates spinning and catching the spoons in the glasses.
Mr. & Mrs. G finished off the show with their ‘crossbow’ act. Beautiful and daring indeed!
Mrs. G. (Naomi Brenkman) prepares her crossbow for shooting.
Both Mr. & Mrs. G. fired crossbows at one another in the act. Attempting to hit the target.
One More show tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm!
