Over 400 circus and variety arts stars have appeared in the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret since its inception by Brooklynites Stephanie Monseau and Keith Nelson two decades ago, featuring aerial performances, fire eating, funambulism, contortion, acrobatic balance, sword swallowing, juggling, physical comedy, sideshow stunts, oddball novelty turns and much more. The Bindlestiff stage is one of the few arenas in the world where audiences may see internationally renowned street performers, featured acts from Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Brothers, artists made known by America’s Got Talent, and even local legends all on stage together in the same incredible show.
In keeping with Bindlestiff’s underground New York City roots, the audience is encouraged to participate in the glamour of the evening by dressing the part. Those in costume or circus makeup can ask for a discounted ticket at the door. Perhaps you’ve got some top boots and a tailcoat in the closet? Or a corset and tutu you’ve been dying to wear? A cotton-candy-floss wig and sparkly eyelashes? There’s no better time to dig them out, put them on, and be part of the spectacle!
