Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret


Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret

An exciting all-new production

70 minutes of non-stop entertainment



Join the Bindlestiffs for a celebration of that dangerous space between failure and glory. In this inspired commingling of circus arts and intimate cabaret, the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret presents an elegant night of unabashed spectacle, melding together irreverent comedy, daring feats, fits of beauty and live original music. Featuring a cast of circus and variety luminaries led by Bindlestiff co-founders Stephanie Monseu and Keith Nelson.

The cast takes audiences on a journey fraught with peril, witnessing a walk atop champagne bottles and the swallowing of a three-foot butterfly knife. With effervescent aerial displays and captivating presentations of legerdemain, the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret promises a delightful escape from the everyday, and so much more than the usual song and dance.

The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret cast for the 2018 NYC season featured cast members Keith Nelson (vaudevillian juggler and sideshow marvel), Stephanie Monseu (emcee and instigator), The Great Kaplan (Eccentric man of magic, and purveyor of deadpan nonsense), Evan Ruggiero (triple threat, singer, actor, and one-legged tap dancer), Chloe Somers Wall (delightfully daring aerial acrobat) and Mr. and Mrs. G. (magnificent masters of the crossbow ).  The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Band features Robert Cowie on keyboards and Eric Biondo on trumpet and beats.  The show is directed by Michelle Matlock, originator of The Ladybug role in Cirque du Soleil’s “Ovo”.
