The Optimist Feb 22-Mar 31
Posted February 22, 2018
The Peoples Improv Theater partners with the Atlas Circus Company to bring circus arts into its theater in a redeveloped version of Atlas Circus Company’s The Optimist, a unique and topical narrative told through high-flying acrobatic feats, dancing, and magic.

Told through movement, theater, and circus skills, The Optimist is the tale of a starving artist; living and breathing for a craft that can truly change the world. The path of the optimist is one through an ever changing, dark and uncertain universe full of pitfalls and heartache yet illuminated by the sheer and unwavering forces of hope and effervescence. This production takes its audience into a world not unlike their own to bring forth childlike wonder, to appreciate those who work so diligently to reach even the smallest stages, and to peer into the small yet powerful elements that connect us.
