Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
The legendary Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Cabaret returns to New York City. Since the first Winter Cabaret in 1994, this annual spectacle has provided a stage for the world's best in circus, sideshow, vaudeville, burlesque, and variety. In 2013, the tradition continues in the newly renovated Slipper Room.

This March, expect the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Winter Cabaret to present many of today's top variety and circus artists. Jugglers, clowns, acrobats, and trapeze artists share the stage with musicians, magicians, dancers, and daredevils. Witness viscerally exciting, jaw dropping entertainment—circus feats, sideshow marvels, and world-class entertainers—in a most intimate theater setting. The Bindlestiff stage is one of the few arenas in the world where you may see internationally renowned street performers, featured acts from Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Brothers, and artists made famous by America's Got Talent, live, on stage, in the same show.

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.”

About Bindlestiff Family Cirkus

Since 1995 the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus has traveled the world, bringing its unique hybrid of vaudeville, circus, burlesque, and sideshow to theaters, clubs, colleges, and festivals. The company has produced innumerable cabaret shows, custom performances for special audiences, all-ages and family productions, and sophisticated adult shows. In the millennium, our Off- Off Broadway theatrical productions have included 2001's Buckaroo Bindlestiff's Wild West Gender Bender Jamboree, 2003's High Heels & Red Noses, 2005's From the Gutter to the Glitter: A Night Out with the Bindlestiffs (an Independent Theater award nominee), and 2008's Kinko for President. From 2002-2004, Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, in conjunction with chashama, operated Bindlestiff Palace of Variety, the last vaudeville house and dime museum in Times Square. 2004 marked the beginning of Bindlestiff's youth program, the Cavalcade of Youth, in which young performers and technical staff (ages 4-20) have the opportunity to hone their skills with variety arts professionals and perform on stage. Over 400 of the best artists in the field are members of the Bindlestiff's family tree, and can be seen today on stages, nightclubs, cruise ships, at festivals, in circus and spiegeltents, and in the streets all over the world.
