Trixie Little

(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Hudson’s own Bindlestiff Family Cirkus brings to a conclusion its sixth annual Cabin Fever Cabaret series at Club Helsinki Hudson on Saturday, March 11, at 9pm, plus a Sunday matinee show on March 12 at 3pm, geared to the entire family. Bindlestiff’s monthly cabaret features a variety of circus, theater, comedy and musical entertainers.

For Saturday night only, Bindlestiff welcomes Burlesque Hall of Fame queen Trixie Little. On Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, guest artists include Brian P Dailey and Chatham-born Logan Kerr juggling and making music as BRK MTN; physical comedians and daredevils Rob and Jane; force-of-nature aerialist Samantha Sterman; and live, original accompaniment by Sabrina Chap.

As always, Ringmistress Philomena and vaudevillian charmer Mr. Pennygaff guide the journey into Cirkus-land.

Bindlestiff’s unique style reflects deep roots in NYC’s underground club scene, nods to political street theater, and a steady respect for the traditions of American popular entertainment and illegitimate theater.
