Celebrate the best of the roaring ‘20s with live jazz, glittering dancers, and jaw-dropping circus spectacle.
Give your password at the door and step inside for a circus revue steeped in the glory of Old Vaudeville. Cool cats and dapper dames from the Boston Circus Guild will amaze you with their acrobatic feats of strength, high-energy hooping, and glamorous aerial performances. This amazing sold-out show from the Outside the Box festival has been revamped with new characters, plot twists, and an ever-revolving lineup of new acts. Get dolled up in your finest threads and put your dancing shoes on! Following the late show, stay for a swingin’ dance party that goes until 1:00 am.
“An amazing revue steeped in old world vaudeville, the Speakeasy Circus had the tent absolutely packed, with the crowd cheering and stomping along the whole show. Acts like hula-hooper extraordinaire Little L, chanteuse Lilly Bordeaux, big band Hot Club of Somerville, and acrobatic/swing dance fusion duo Zookoiya… prompted impromptu swing dances in the audience, and had everyone reluctant to leave the party after the final strains of the Hot Club’s cover of Squirrel Nuts Zippers’ ‘Hell’ faded away. If you made the scene all day, was there hell to pay? We don’t think so!” - http://outsidetheboxboston.org/day-eight-of-outside-the-box/
