Hudson's resident band of sideshow specialists are back for another winter in residence at Helsinki Hudson. The adult-oriented cabaret kicks off on January 16 at 9pm with an eclectic mix of internationally renowned street performers, circus acts, theater, comedy, and original, witty musical entertainment. Each month will bring a new lineup, from sword swallowers to contortionists to aerialists. (A family-friendly matinee will be offered on March 20.) Audiences are encouraged to dress for the occasion, and those in costume or circus makeup receive discounted admission. (518) 828-4800; Helsinkihudson.com.
