Throwback Tales: A Retro Spectacle
Come for the circus spectacle, stay for the retro dance party, and share a night with the Boston Circus Guild that you’ll never forget!
Do you remember the nervous tension of your first kiss? How about dancing with abandon to a favorite song in your childhood bedroom? Relive these memories and more with the Boston Circus Guild's "Throwback Tales: A Retro Spectacle"! During this fantastical #flashback to the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s, professional circus artists will reveal personal stories from their youth, brought to life once more through superhuman displays of skill. Throughout the show aerialists will soar overhead, acrobats will amaze with their strength and flexibility, and jugglers will deftly toss clubs back and forth in time to the music, all while bringing back the funny, poignant, cringe-worthy, or triumphant memories of days gone by.
Named by the Boston Globe as one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch”, writer and storyteller Wes Hazard will lead this time-hopping adventure as master of ceremonies. There will be two intermissions between acts during which a retro dance party, brought to you through the DJ talents of A.C. Wiley, will fill the night with nostalgic musical hits from the last three decades. Come dressed to impress! Use #BCGTBT to show us your Jordan’s, double belts and acid wash jeans!
