Note from the CircusNYC Editors: We originally posted the Bindlestiff Open Stage Variety Show on December 12, 2011, but we're re-posting this updated listing to bounce this item back into prominence so nobody will miss this fun monthly show. The acts range from righteous to retched—in the best possible way—and the audience is always a fun mix of the city's circus and variety scenesters, so come hang out at the bar before and after the performance. For information on performing in this show, see here. This show is still going strong as of May 2015. Recommended!
