Glitz, tricks, and just enough raunch—Bindlestiff Family Cirkus is back in town with its adult-only winter cabaret. Part Cirque du Soleil-inspired spectacle, part New York City-underground burlesque, Bindlestiff performances are a kaleidoscopic display of trapeze, contortion, acrobatic balance, physical comedy, sword swallowing, and witty original songs. Hudson's Club Helsinki hosts the troupe on the fourth Saturday of three months—January 24, February 28, and March 28—with a rotating lineup of local legends and internationally renowned acts. Audience members who contribute to the vaudeville energy in costume receive a discounted admission. A family-appropriate matinee is available on Sunday, March 29. (518) 828-4800.
