If you think you hate the circus, I urge you to check out Spiegelworld. It’s usually stationed in NYC, but is currently wintering in Miami Beach. Oh and don’t bring the kids-although I imagine it’s a 21 and over show.
It’s hilarious, dirty, scary (I don’t think I’d sit in the front row next time), embarrassing and exciting for the entire two hour show. Here’s a good review from the NY Times, but perhaps the best explanation I’ve seen comes from Cindy Adams of the NY Post -“an off-beat European circus on acid – Do not miss it.”
Coming in January there’s a late night lounge show starring the comedy/music relief from the regular show. I’ll definitely be attending.
