For twenty years, Bindlestiff’s NYC Cabaret season has provided a stage for the world’s best in circus, sideshow, vaudeville, burlesque, and variety.
In keeping with Bindlestiff’s clubby NYC roots, the audience is encouraged to dress for festival and be part of the glamour of the evening. Those in costume or circusy 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? Dig them out, put them on, and be part of the spectacle.
The New York Times said of the BFC Cabaret: “It’s old-fashioned variety entertainment of the sort Ed Sullivan so astutely scooped up, but with twists.”
