The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosts Bindlestiff Family Cirkus for a special one-night-only performance on August 1. This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

Since 1995, The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus has traveled the world with a talented and diverse troupe of American circus artists, bringing a unique hybrid of vaudeville, circus, and sideshow spectacle to theaters, clubs, colleges, and festivals. Bindlestiff Family Cirkus combines jugglers, acrobats, contortionists, plate spinning, sword swallowing, novelty music and dance, and other risk-taking feats set to live music, creating an interactive evening of fun for the entire family.

The company’s shows have ranged from family events to annual Off-Broadway productions and Bindlestiff’s Flatbed Follies, a free mobile circus in the streets of NYC. Annually, Bindlestiff presents the NYC Unicycle Festival; the First of May Award for support of emerging artists; connects youth to the arts with Bindlestiff’s Cirkus After School and Cavalcade of Youth performances; and provides a springboard to development with Bindlestiff’s Open Stage Variety Show, the premiere open mic just for circus folks. The New York Times has called Bindlestiff Family Cirkus an “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.”
