The Open Stage Variety Show Variety Stage is a response to variety artists--circus, sideshow, vaudeville, etc.--not having a stage to work on new material with a live audience. We create a supportive "laboratory" for emerging artists and professionals alike to work on material, try new bits, reawaken old acts and showcase material.
Bindlestiff Open Stage Variety Show is a monthly production by Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc. Bindlestiff is a NY based non-profit performing arts organization.
Circus * Sideshow * Vaudeville * Burlesque * Dance * Music
Come to Dixon Place for a night of variety that will include much more than a simple song and dance. Bindlestiffs Open Stage Variety Show is a non stop variety show experience that may include The Heavy Metal Magician, Kung Fu juggling, trained rats, clown bands, aerial artists, wire walkers, sideshow performers, stripping clowns, living ...cartoons, physical comedy, a cougar contortionist, emerging burlesque starlets, and more. Hosted by Keith "Bindlestiff" Nelson, the show celebrates works in progress, emerging artists, and professionals trying something new, this night promises many surprises.
