Bindlestiff Open Stage Quarantine Edition
Posted May 2, 2020
Come to … your local desktop, laptop, mobile phone, iPad or any other internet-connected device for a night of variety that includes much more than a simple song and dance! Featuring never-before-seen acts by both up-and-coming and established artists in circus, sideshow, vaudeville, burlesque, dance, music and puppetry!

Hosted by Keith "Bindlestiff" Nelson, the special Quarantine Edition deals with social distance and isolation head on. Using the tools of video conferencing, Bindlestiff’s Open Stage will feature each act live in their own location, with artists from all over the country and the world!

Bindlestiff Open Stage Variety Show has been a community lab for works-in-progress, new material by old pros, emerging artists' first attempts, and everything in between for over 15 years in NYC. Most recently, its home is Dixon Place Theater in the Lower East Side. Until we can all get back to business-as-usual, we’ll be streaming live each Monday evening at 7:30 pm EDT. Join the live stream to see what's happening in the evolution of circus and variety arts right now!
Mondays, 7:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time
(6:30 Central, 5:30 Mountain, 4:30 Pacific)
