The Circus Comes to Town 



The Spiegeltent returns to Bard this summer, setting up their dazzling, old-world cabaret tent with its theater-in-the-round, beveled mirrors, carved-wood details, and velvet canopies. On summer afternoons, Speigeltent offers family fare acts such as the Princess Moxie puppet show and the clowning around of Cirque Voila's Mini Cirque. If you're over 18, come for eye-popping evening cabaret like John Kelly's "Paved Paradise Redux" and the trapeze-swinging Wau Wau Sisters. Speigeltent's Thursday Night Live features an ecletic mix of live music and on Friday nights, the tent transforms to Speigelclub, a late-night dance party from 10pm to 1am. The season runs July 8 to August 22 at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson. www.fishercenter.bard.edu/speigeltent.
